Women’s Fashion History Through Newspapers: 1941-1960

Share this post:

On Sept. 8, 2021, “Headlines and Heroes” published a blog post highlighting women’s fashion in the 20th century as shown in newspapers. Although we are proud to enhance discoverability of the Library’s Chronicling America newspaper collections, the blog post used content from the Fashion History Timeline from the Fashion Institute of Technology in an inappropriate manner. After considering concerns raised with the post, the Library made the decision to remove the blog post. “Headlines and Heroes” apologizes both to the Fashion Institute of Technology — whose important work we did not appropriately recognize —and to its readers.
