These pages explain the history. I learned about Grace Durand earlier this year in a presentation about women in Lake County history. Here is much more about her. (Her entry in the 1914 Woman's Who's Who of America says she believes in "restricted suffrage for men and women." What restrictions, I wonder?)
Well, I did sneak some inside pictures. (Don't turn me in, please.)
There is an exhibit of Newcomb Pottery -- again, no photography allowed. If you watch Antiques Roadshow you are familiar with the pottery workshop at Sophie Newcomb College in New Orleans.
This article shows photos of the pottery and needlework in the Newcomb exhibit.
