Commemorating the 100’th anniversary of the end of World War One, the museum is showing dolls from the war. The collection is on loan from Kathy Harryman, President of the Yolo County Historical Society and an avid doll collector. There are approximately 18 dolls in the collection ranging from 10 to 28” in length. According to the International Encyclopedia of the First World War, ‘children were the target of propaganda…toys (dolls); it was one means to strengthen their identification with the nation’s war effort. The Liberty Boy (in the collection) was used in the sale of war bonds. The collection is on exhibit until after the World War One Memorial Parade on Saturday, November 10 in Woodland.
