In February 1946, the Minerva Club sponsored an event with Mrs. William Lambert Potts of Fresno, who shared her collection of clothing from travels in 48 countries. This photo shows Mrs. Potts, Mrs. Robert Hancock (Ann) in "peasant attire of French Indo-China", Mrs. Paul Nelson (Dorothea) as a "Shinto priestess", and Mrs. Leland Smith (Julia) in a "gold-embroidered costume of China".
