Name of creator
Marjorie Jessie (Madge) Guilford was born in Clearwater, Manitoba in 1917. She earned a BA in Home Economics and a diploma in Education from the University of Manitoba before completing an MA at Columbia University in 1952. She joined the University of Saskatchewan at the rank of assistant professor in 1956. She was a specialist in clothing and textiles with a special interest in the history costume. Guilford served as acting Dean of the College of Home Economics from 1974-1976 and was Assistant Dean at the time of her death in 1978.
Transferred to the Archives from the University Library, where they had been kept as part of the Guilford Costume Collection; prior custodial history unknown.
Scope and content
This fonds contains a binder of articles and photographs documenting costume design, and part of the material appears to have been catalogued as part of the College of Home Economics Guilford Costume Collection. There are also numerous, uncatalogued photographs (sepia and black and white), primarily of individuals and presumably collected to document costume and fashion. There are also a small number of photographs of Pense, Regina, and Regina Beach, Saskatchewan.
