History of Object: Belonged to the donor's aunt, Ida Ann Vaughn (1892-1994). She was born in 1892 in Quenemo, Osage County, Kansas. Her mother, Minnie Mize Vaughn, died a year after she was born. Ida received this cabinet about that time (1893) but was not allowed to play with it until she was deemed old enough to know how to take care of it. It came with a set of 11 white dishes that are also in the collection. Her father, Charles Thomas Vaughn, was a farmer. See accession file for more information.
