Who Is The UFDC?

The UFDC is an organization for doll collectors and people associated with dolls through their business or profession. We are largely dependent on volunteers who contribute in many and varied ways. Some of our volunteers have been helping out for years, and we look forward to continuing working with them, as well as with all the new ones.

The UFD has been given a wonderful makeover through generous donations and has helped to completely change the direction of our organization. A new curatorial position has been created, as well, allowing us to manage our inventory and collections more effectively. We have hosted one symposium and another one is in the works. Most exciting, we are currently working on building a new website.

Our annual conventions are attended by hundreds of members, and provides members an opportunity to meet and talk with the officers and regional directors as well as greet old friends and make new ones. We invite each of you to join us in Phoenix July 17-21, 2018, for our 69th annual UFDC convention.

In addition to the convention, UFDC hosts other exciting events throughout the year. On October 19, 2017 the Grace Drayton Campbell Kids special exhibit will be held at the Museum. Coming up on October 28, 2017, is the Miss Ethel Newcome Lunch & Learn at our headquarters in Kansas City. Miss Ethel Newcome is a wonderful Civil War era doll. Reservations are encouraged!
