Caddie Woodlawn Paper Doll. It looks like Caddie picked daisies for her hair as well as berries! Her cotton dress dates back to the 1860s. The white cotton pinafore that covers her dress and serves as a basket for the berries dates from 1868. Both are in the textile collection of the Wisconsin Historical Society. Illustration courtesy Sue Shanahan.
The classic story of Caddie Woodlawn has inspired young readers to live adventurously and bravely. Instead of baking, Caddie would spend her time hunting with her brothers. She'd rather spend time with her Native American neighbors than sit and sew with her mother and sisters. Caddie's story comes to life in the Museum; join the adventure!
