We Are Zooming!


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Doll Study Club of Boston has begun holding our monthly board and general member meetings on Zoom. We will continue doing so for the foreseeable future, until it is safe and allowed to gather in larger groups. Although nothing compares to meeting in person, this platform helps us to maintain our connections and share our passions for all things doll related - just at a distance!

Madame’s Inspirations:  From Whence Her Designs Came

With Dr. Marsha Hunter, UFDC Region 9 Director

Auction check-in from 8:30 am to 9:30 am 
Event festivities from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Dr. Hunter will focus on some of the unusual and little-known sources for the names of Madame Alexander’s dolls as well as the dolls created from those names. The celebrities, literature, characters, and everyday designs are well known, but early names and designs required extensive research. This program seeks to bring to light some of those more remote sources of inspiration.

Nationally recognized Madame Alexander expert Dr. Marsha Hunter lives, breathes, and loves all things Madame Alexander. Hunter has been a Madame Alexander collector for 45+ years and published the book, Alexander’s Rag Line, in 1982. She has served on the board and as as the president of the Madame Alexander Doll Club. She was awarded that organization's Service Award - the highest honor that the Madame Alexander Doll Club can bestow on a member - in 1998.  A long time UFDC member, Hunter has also received the UFDC Award of Excellence for the Special Exhibit, Celebrate Madame Alexander: Her Life & Her Legacy with her friend, Pat Burns.

This event is for UFDC members and their guests only. 
Attendance is capped at 125 guests.
First come, first served. Please register today!
