Can a fashion doll from England find happiness and friendship in Colonial America? Among the cargo carried to Boston on ships bringing "the detested tea," was a doll that has become known as the "Polly Sumner Doll" named for its original owner. She was purchased by a young woman in Boston, Polly Sumner, and her younger sister named the doll for the purchaser. For five generations children in this family played with the doll, and took her to see some historic events--the Battle of Bunker Hill and Lafayette's visit in 1824. Since 1886, Polly Sumner has been part of the collection of the Old South Meeting House or the Bostonian Society, and visiting children would write to her. Now Richard C. Wiggin has told Polly's story in a children's book, Polly Sumner: Witness to the Boston Tea Party.
