Shirley Temple earns a spotlight at doll and toy museum

The memory of Little Miss Miracle, Shirley Temple, will be honored during a book signing and exhibit at the Spencer Doll and Toy Museum of Spencer, North Carolina.

Shirley Temple accomplished the impossible with her infectious smiles – she helped Americans all over conquer the catastrophe of the Great Depression.  She allowed people even just a few minutes respite to escape from the economic troubles of the nation.  Due to her extreme popularity, it makes sense that Shirley Temple themed items of all varieties became incredibly sought after and collectible.

In return for her service, Shirley Temple dolls, memorabilia, and items endorsed by Shirley over the years receive a tribute at The Spencer Doll and Toy Museum.  In addition to a not-to-miss collection of Shirley Temple items, historian and UNC Chapel Hill professor John Kasson will be discussing his new book “The Little Girl Who Fought the Great Depression: Shirley Temple and 1930s America.”

You can find the exhibit in Spencer, North Carolina at The Spencer Doll and Toy Museum.
