Since January, JoAnn Peters and Jane Sheetz, scholars from Brigham Young University in Rexburg, Idaho, have been archiving historic clothing and textiles at the Copper King Mansion. So far, they’ve cataloged over 2,500 items, some of which date back to the Edwardian and Victorian eras and hail everywhere from Butte manufactures of old to manufacturers from Paris and South America. April 3 through 13 they will display some of the clothing at an exhibit at BYU's library.
