These shoes belonged to Ruth Jordan in the 1940's. Ruth had a sense of style when it came to her clothing. While she had to be practical in her farm work wardrobe (pants, comfortable shoes, cotton blouses and always a bonnet), she was always stylish in dressing for her community activities.
BIO: Ruth Woolf Jordan (1902-1996) was originally from Kentucky. Her family moved to Tempe, Arizona in 1912. Ruth followed her childhood dream of becoming a rural school teacher. She met her future husband, Walter Jordan (Willie and Annie’s sixth child), after she began her work in a one-room school house in Beaver Creek. Since teachers could not work after they were married, she began her second calling in Sedona as a farmer’s wife after their marriage in 1930.
