Ruth Combs' Junior-Senior Banquet Dress, 1944
Donated by Susan Young
Ruth Combs graduated from Fayetteville High School in 1944. In her Class of 1944 yearbook, Ruth said she wanted to work in a defense plant after graduation.
The dress is handmade, and since Ruth's favorite subject was Home Economics, it's quite possible she made the dress herself.
