This is a pair of children's slippers from the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum's collection that was crocheted by Ida McKinley. Of the estimated 4000 pairs she made, the museum has 10 pairs in its collection (plus a single slipper that lost its mate before it was donated to us!). We would love to know how many other pairs of her slippers are out there!

Ida Saxton McKinley crocheted these light blue wool bedroom slippers for Dr. Edward O. Morrow, an original staff member of the Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio. They were one of an estimated 4,000 pairs McKinley made and distributed to friends, veterans, and orphans or sold at auction to raise money for charity. These slippers are in the collection of the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum and were pinned from the Ohio Memory Project.
