Picture of Emily Rufi Frazier and daughter-in-law, Verla Madsen Frazier at the Frazier Woodruff Ranch, about the same time as the journal, from Glenn and Helen Rex Frazier collection. Frank Union Frazier 1947 journal in my possession. Are those dresses Emily and Verla wearing made from the same fabric. Who do you think made them?
