Katie and Jillian’s Subject Analysis Group Exercise

The website, http://www.museumofplay.org/collections/doll, was created by The Strong Museum of Play, a museum centered on collections and play.  The doll collection, compiled by Margaret Woodbury Strong, consists of four categories:

  • dolls manufactured before 1950
  • dolls manufactured after 1950
