White organdy apron with blue and red piping. Lettering across front: "I LIKE IKE"
Object donated on July 17th, 1963 by Miss Beatrice Trovillion. A member of the Republican Women's Club of Boulder, Beatrice wore this apron while hosting a tea at her home during the campaign.
Beatrice was born in 1890 to Mima Caroline Trovillion and Edward Boicourt Trovillion, a Chicago-born doctor who acquired a practice in Gold Hill, Colorado. Edward opened up a pharmacy attached to the offices and eventually sold both and moved his family to Boulder.
According to ancestry.com census records, Beatrice graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1912 and went on to work as a stenographer for law offices in both Washington, DC and Manhattan. She had returned to Colorado by 1940 and was active in political campaigns. She never married and died in 1977.
