The University of Southern Mississippi's "Dixie Darlings" are definetely a part of the university's history. The exhibit in the Centennial Exhibit room in the Cook Library, is a great way to find out about how they started and what the very first "Dixie Darlings" uniform looked like. It was actually donated by a woman by the name of Anne Larman who was from Pass Christian, MS.
It even goes as far as letting you know who actually made the uniform. The woman who actually made or sewed the uniform was named Sarra Farris, and she was actually from Hattiesburg, MS. This was all so interesting and I found it very relative to knowing more about my university and the people who make up it.
