Historic Costume Collection

Fisher Gallery, 2nd floor
Roush Hall, 27 S. Grove St., Westerville, OH 43081
Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.

The rotating Historic Costume Collection exhibit in Fisher Gallery on the second floor of Roush Hall features garments donated by alumni and friends representing different eras from history. Currently on display through mid-June are men’s and women’s garments from the “Psychedelic ’60s” (1964-1974). It began with the loss of Camelot, when President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. It ended when Watergate forced Nixon to resign. The intervening years changed America forever. Baby boomers became teens; the Beatles and Twiggy came to town; Civil Rights, the Vietnam War, the pill, pot, LSD and love beads were in the news. We were in a whirlwind of social turmoil and change. We said goodbye to little hats, white gloves and spike heels. Gone were the grey flannel suit and narrow ties for men. Long hair, short skirts and, above all, bright colors were in fashion. Men discovered Nehru jackets, leisure suits, long hair, sideburns and beards. For a brief ten years we were peacocks, until after the Bicentennial in 1976, when Americans once again donned the drab hues of blue jeans, pant suits and the formality of working men and women.

The Presidents’ Gallery

Towers Hall, 2nd floor
1 S. Grove St., Westerville, OH 43081
Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. daily.

Permanent display of Otterbein University’s presidents starting with first President Griffith in 1847 and ends with 19th President DeVore in a contemporary design that retains the traditional arched windows and doorways of Towers Hall, which was built in 1872. Each president has a 6-feet tall window-shaped plaque featuring his photograph and biography. The 19 plaques lead down a curved hallway and are flanked with two restored 12-feet tall stained glass windows from Towers Hall.
