As we continue to celebrate our first year of What We Wore - our new collections platform in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation - a new group of garments from The Henry Ford’s rich collection of clothing and accessories makes its debut. This season it's all about kids.
Today we're excited to announce the acquisition of the largest collection of diner materials in the country, put together by the leading expert on the subject, Richard J.S. Gutman. The collection of thousands of 2D and 3D artifacts includes historic photographs, slides, drawings, manufacturers’ catalogs, postcards, menus, tables, stools, tableware, promotional giveaway items, clothing and more, from diners across the United States. Gutman grew his collection in the course of his research for four books, numerous articles, three major exhibitions, and multiple restoration and consulting projects. In addition, he was instrumental in the move and restoration of The Henry Ford’s own Lamy’s Diner, which is now used as a dining experience inside Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, and also the reconstruction of the Owl Night Lunch Wagon, the last surviving lunch wagon in existence, located in Greenfield Village. We're currently working on digitizing pieces from this collection. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.
