Underwear: A Brief History

Underwear: A Brief History

On view May 7 to Sept. 11, 2011

See the kinds of underpinnings worn by generations past, from Victorian flappers to 1970s modsters. The Minnesota Historical Society holds in its collection the business records, including product samples, of Munsingwear, Inc. View items from the collection including photos, advertisements and clothing like the union suit, women's undergarments made by Vassarette, and men's briefs with the "kangaroo pouch."

This exhibit is offered in conjunction with the new MHS Press book "In the Mood for Munsingwear" by Susan Marks.
