Terry has B.S. in Botany, a Ph.D. in Ecology, and was an Assistant Professor of Botany at the University of Wyoming before embarking on a full-time research career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service.  In retirement she is pursuing various lines of quilt history research.  She has given numerous presentations on textile history to a variety of groups including a presentation to the Denver Botanic Garden’s School of Botanical Art & Illustration describing the mutually beneficial connections between botanical illustrations and chintz textile design.  She is a member of the American Quilt Study Group, has published articles in both Uncoverings and Blanket Statements, and is webmaster and chief creator of content for the Floral Motifs on Early Chintz website.

How did the desire for chintz in the 18th and 19th centuries give birth to the Industrial Revolution and make the British the providers by 1860 of half the world’s printed textiles?  How did chintz become “the” status symbol of an age?  This presentation will explain the details, show how massive fortunes were made in the process, and discuss the social ramifications of production of this lovely textile.
