Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

pennant pillow

pillow

We don't know who sewed this pillow. We do know that pennants such as these were common souvenirs. They were tied to sticks and used as flags during athletic events, or they were tied together--hence their double laces at the large end--and made into pennant streamers. All these examples represent popular colleges, from Harvard to Oregon State. Crafts such as this were common in the early years of the 20th century.
