This doll is part of Karan McKibben’s larger collection. In 1951, when Karan was seven years old, she caught polio, which left her disabled and in a wheelchair. She lived in Los Alamos, NM, and for the next decade, people would bring back a doll for Karan from the many places they visited.
Collection donated in Karan’s memory.
