The information contained in this virtual scrapbook was taken from the publication that was issued in conjunction with the exhibition “Converting Commodity Bags: Recycling Circa 1940,” held at the LSU Textile and Costume Museum from April through December 2005. The exhibition was funded through a grant from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through the continued support of the LSU School of Human Ecology and the Friends of the LSU Textile and Costume Museum. The items that were used in the brochure were donated by Rita Aucoin Grant, Leah Aucoin Shaffer, and the Friends of the LSU Textile and Costume Museum and loaned by Jane Hughes and Dr. Jennifer L. Banning. Dr. Monica Santaella compiled this virtual scrapbook.
