The Museum has had the great fortune of acquiring one of the very few Olympic Sweaters that were given out at the 1960 winter games. It is truly impressive ~ in great condition like the day it was worn. The sweaters were given to the winners prior to receiving their medals on the podium. Pictured here is the beautiful, American gold medal winner Carol Heiss and American bronze medal winner Barbara Roles.
