While it is unknown if there is any truth to who Mother Gray was, the product itself was distributed and marketed by Allen S. Olmstead who owned a proprietary medicine company. The powders werent exactly made from all-natural ingredients, the main ingredient was actually calomel (mercurous chloride), which could be toxic if used regularly, causing mercury poisoning. Other ingredients were licorice, slippery elm, anise, sulfur, bicarbonate of soda, sugar (hence the word sweet in the name) and mandrake (also poisonous). The second item is a paper doll of Mother Gray, who supposedly was a nurse, specializing in children's health. The "walking" paper doll has feet on the bottom that rotate as you push it across a table. The pocket of the dress has an insert so that you can have something sticking out of the pocket. The back states that the doll was made by J. B. Carroll Co. Measures 5 3/4" x3" (booklet), 6" x 2 1/2" (paper doll) . Minor toning due to age.

Barbara Plummer & Barbara Barnett A Collection of 28 Paper Doll Sets by the Jones Sisters. 1987-2011
This collection of 28 paper dolls by the Jones Sisters, a pair of women, named Barbara Plummer and Barbara Barnett, who designed paper dolls. The majority of the collection are limited edition runs that were sold at the yearly Paper Doll Convention. The collection date from 1987-2011, with the bulk of them dating from the late 1980s. What is unique about these paper dolls are the outfits, as the majority of them are constructed from wall paper. The wall paper is used as 'fabric patterns' to form the base of the design, and are flushed out with ink and color markers. The collection has been organized into four categories: Military, Career,  Fashion and Miscellaneous. Each paper doll set contains one, uncut paper doll and a variety of cut (by the designer) outfits and accessories. Two of the sets have two dolls - a mother and daughter pair, and a child and doll pairing. Each set comes with a title page with the name of the doll, its series (were applicable), date (three of the dolls sets in the collection are undated) and designer. Often times the title page would also list if any portion of the sales of the dolls were going to a charity, such the American Cancer Society, Make a Wish Foundation, Breast Cancer Research and Multiple Sclerosis. The sets are stored in a custom made wallpaper folder. Three of the paper doll sets in the collection, under the Military category, do not have the same design aesthetic and packaging. One was made in 2002, and feature uncut outfits, not made with wallpaper. The doll itself has its look based off of a real female combat pilot, and her outfits span several centuries, and comes in pairs. Each period represented include one fashion outfit and one combat or nursing outfit. The other two were made by Barbara Barnett in 2011 for the Paper Doll Convention in Dayton, OH. They both are Military women, (WAC: Women's Army Corp & SPAR: Semper Paraus Always Ready, the USGS Women's Reserve Force), and each set features two uncut pages of a paper doll, and her outfit/accessories. These pages are printed copies of dolls that look like they were drawn by ink and marker, without the use of wallpaper like the rest of the sets in the collection. During the over thirty year span Barnett and Plummer worked together, they alternatively worked under the names of the Jones Sisters and Two Bs' Design. Some of the items in this collection are made solely by Barnett. A database of the dolls is available upon request. Measures (wallpaper folder) 8 3/4" x 5 3/4" .

Childhood Letters of Emily Hockaday Blair (Henrotin). .Missouri.1888-1894
A wonderful collection of over 40 items of a child's letters to her parents. Emily Hockaday Blair was only five years old when her mother and father sent her away to her aunt's house in 1888. Emily spent at least several months there a year while her parents were traveling between various cities in Missouri, Chicago, Washington, DC, and New York. Eventually it appears she also began to go to school year around near her Aunt's house. For the next six years Emily sent letters to her father, Francis Preston Blair III, and mother, Florence Price Blair, keeping them updated on her education and constantly asking to see them soon or if they were sending her any dolls. The collection includes correspondence and drawings done by Emily Hockaday Blair. The letters written by Emily are addressed to Faver and Mudgie, presumably pet names for her father and mother. The envelopes within the collection are either addressed to Florence Price Blair or Francis Preston Blair. The first few letters are from 1888 when Emily would have been about five years old. These early letters mostly consist of Emily practicing her writing on one side, normally writing either her or a family members names or the alphabet. Occasionally there are also some drawings accompanying her practice letters. The actual letter on the other side was written by her Aunt Lizbeth. However they are the words of Emily herself as the letters end with "this is just as she dictates." As Emily grows and begins to become more proficient in her writing she begins to write to her parents herself. These letters mostly consist of her stating her wish to see her parents soon and either requesting a new toy or thanking them for one they sent. By 1893 she has started writing more detailed letters about her education and the time she was spending with her cousins. She even sent them two maps she drew of the United States for school. The last two letters in the collection were sent in 1894. They were written on the same day, August 23, with one addressed to Faver and one to Mudgie. They are the only two letters not handwritten, and were produced by a typewriter. In addition to the letters there is a hand embroidered handkerchief that was Emily's New Years gift in 1892 to her parents. There is also a photograph of Emily herself. Based on the stamp on the back it taken by Joseph L. Douglass, a commercial photographer in Columbia, Missouri who was active from the 1890s into the early 1900s. She is wearing a large hat and appears to be about six years old. Additionally, there is a small name card/visiting card, with Emily's name printed on it and a note stating to "Mudgie and Faver". Lastly there is a poem "The Queen's Gift" written by Rose Hartwick Thorpe, which was transcribed by Emily at some point. There are 8 envelopes in the collection. Based upon the address present, it is obvious her parents traveled a great deal. Several of them are to Kansas City, Missouri. Two others were sent to Muskogee and South McAlister in Indian Territory (now known as Oklahoma). The last three are addressed to two different addresses in Chicago, presumably from when her father started to set up his law practice there. Additionally several of the letters themselves make reference to her parents travel to New York and Washington DC. To view this collection please click on the following link: https://goo.gl/photos/PJAKxHjqGoVdccyF7 . Emily was born on November 16, 1883 in Missouri. Both her mother and father were a part of well-known and prestigious families in the 1800s. Her mother was from a prominent, pioneering Missouri family, the Prices. Her grandfather Robert Beverly Price was a well-known banker and gentleman farmer, who was active in local politics. He was also greatly involved in the financial success of his alma mater, the University of Missouri. He served as Treasurer for the university for over forty-five years. Emily herself attended the university in 1907. On her father's side of the family, she was a part of one of the most powerful political families of the 19th century, the Blairs. Emily was the granddaughter of Francis Preston, Jr, and the great granddaughter of Francis Preston, Sr. Preston Sr. was an American journalist, newspaper editor, and influential figure in national politics advising several U.S. presidents across the party lines. He was an unofficial adviser to presidents Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren and Abraham Lincoln. Preston Jr. was an American jurist, politician and soldier. During the Civil War he held the rank of Major General, and commanded a division at Vicksburg under Sherman. He even took part in Sherman's March to the Sea. He was a Missouri Senator, and in 1868, he was Horatio Seymour's vice-presidential candidate for the Democratic Party losing presidential ticket. The Blair family was particular close to Mary Todd Lincoln's family and therefore Abraham Lincoln. In fact, Emily's father, Francis Preston Blair III, reported even played 'town ball' with Abraham Lincoln during his visits to their family's estate in the mid-1860s. Emily's father, Francis Preston Blair III, unlike his forebears and siblings, did not follow in his family's footsteps of national political ambitions. As a young man he graduated West Point and was stationed at Fort Hamilton. Later he studied law at Columbia University in New York. After receiving his degree, he met and married Florence Price. After his marriage, he opened up a law practice first in St. Louis and later Chicago. Emily herself would eventually marry into a prominent Chicago family, the Henrotins. Her in-laws were the Chicago power couple of Ellen Martin Henrotin and Charles Henrotin. Ellen was a writer, activist and staunch suffragette, while Charles was a prominent banker who founded the Chicago Stock Exchange and eventually became an influential person in global politics as he was Consul to both Belgium and Turkey. Emily married their elder son, Edward, and would eventually move to Cherryplain, New York, where she and her husband were involved in farming and sheep breeding. Emily H. B. Henrotin would die in 1965.
Collection of 20th Century Paper Dolls used in Fashion Advertising to Children Directly. .United States.1917-1996
In the 1880s companies saw a way of reaching a wider audience by creating advertising material that was directed towards a young audience. The hope was that children might help to direct their parent's spending habits. By the early 1900s, advertisers had perfected this technique and had come up with a wide variety of paper games and toys meant to attract a child's attention. One such paper toy that was used by advertisers was paper dolls. With the combination of cheap printing and a surge in the popularity of paper dolls, manufacturers of all kinds of household goods took advantage by using them to promote their wares. The fashion and clothing industry in particular used this to great effect, as these ads were designed to mainly target young girls, and encourage them to desire to dress like their favorite paper doll. This collection consists of 11 items (25 dolls) of advertising paper dolls. Below is a brief description of the items within the collection. Dandyline Company Paper Doll (1917) The Dandyline Company, based in Chicago, IL, made dresses for young girls in the early 1900s. It then sold them to retail stores across the country along with an advertising paper doll. While the two dolls in this section are extremely similar, they are slightly different. This is mainly seen in the details of the yellow dress they are both wearing. The back of the doll had a space for the retail store to print its name and address.  This is the "Little Sister" series and includes two dolls and 14 costumes. Note the gender specific objects being held by the costumes. The back of each out had a Lot No. so that one could order the exact outfit. The two stores on the back of the dolls in this collection are E. M. Devine in Philadelphia, PA, and Hirsch D. G. Co. in Decatur, IL. 2 Dolls + 13 outfits, CUT, Measures 7" x 2 1/4" (Doll) FA Quality Family (c1920) During the 1920s a company by the name of FA Quality Trimmings, which sold various ribbons and trimmings meant to accent clothing, started a line of dolls called the FA Quality Family. It was a set of 4 dolls- Mother, Sister, Betty, and Buddy (Buddy is missing from this collection) with three outfits each.  On each sheet is the advertising phrase: "These cut out dolls serve two purposes; to amuse the children and to give you the style suggestions designed by experts." 3 UNCUT SHEETS (3 dolls + 9 outfits), Measures 7 3/4" x 5" Stories and Fashion (1934) Like the title suggests, this 16 pp. black and white booklet contains both paper dolls and short stories.

As part of the growing 18th Century interest in recreational science, metamorphic games also have a classical precedent, with Ovid'sMetamorphosis the most famous and enduring of all the tales of transformation. "Understanding such ways of seeing - the modes of human perception - opened the way to the 'philosophical toy', devices that played with the vagaries of visual capacity and conjured images." (Quoted from Marina Warner inEyes, Lies and Illusions, exhibition catalogue pp.113, 218-19).
