Beatrice Fox Auerbach (1887-1968) is one of the most famous women in Connecticut history. Mention her or the G. Fox & Co. department store to anyone over 40 who grew up in Connecticut, and you’re bound to hear a personal story or recollection.
The CHS hosted the traveling exhibition Beatrice Fox Auerbach: The Woman, Her World & Her Wardrobe organized by the University of Connecticut Historical Costume and Textile Collection. This exhibition included more than 100 garments, shoes, and personal accessories from her childhood to maturity, ranging from the 1890s to the 1960s.
