Deep Research Case 7: Skirt Suit

The Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre needs your help! We’re investigating some unknown objects in the collection and are looking for any information you may have about them. Every week, we’ll be posting a new case. If you have any information about the objects, please contact Collections Manager, Amanda Sittrop, at collections@cmags.org.

This patent leather suit was donated by a volunteer of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games that took place in Canmore. The volunteer traded her Canadian volunteer outfit for this Norwegian one. Were you a volunteer at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games? Did you have experiences with other nations participating in the Games? What did your uniform look like and what type of volunteering did you do? Please call the Museum and make an appointment to tell us your story.
