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!
