NEXT: Wednesday, June 13, 12:30pm
Whitney Robertson, Museum Collections Manager at The Society of the Cincinnati/Anderson House, will discuss a pair of early-19th-century nubuck gloves said to have been worn by fifth president of the United States, James Monroe, at his 1817 inauguration. Rare and well-preserved examples of high-quality men’s accessories from the Federal period (1790s-1830s), these gloves offer a glimpse into the attire of an important American statesman on a snowy winter’s day in the nation’s young capital.
Held in the museum's Belle Vue Room.
