With the intent of enhancing learning and increasing awareness of cotton fibers and textiles among university students preparing for apparel and textile-related careers, students in five Textile and Apparel Management classes conducted research and provided information on cotton artifacts from the Missouri Historic Costume and Textile Collection. Partially sponsored by Cotton Incorporated, the project was co-directed by Dr. Jung Ha-Brookshire and Dr. Laurel Wilson.
