H. Harold Curmode Collection
Description: A black-and-white 8 x 10 photographic print of Columbus, Ohio, fashion designer H. Harold Curmode and Miss Central Ohio Roseann Wolpert wearing one of Curmode's designs. The ballgown was made of white silk organza with a white lace strapless top, and was one of several designs Curmode created for Wolpert to wear at the Miss Ohio Contest held in Mansfield, Ohio, in July 1961. The photograph was taken by an unknown photographer at the Columbus Citizen-Journal. Curmode was born on July 11, 1928, and moved with his family to Columbus in 1936. He served in the U.S. Army and was discharged in 1952. In 1955, Curmode married Doris Ann Vaughn and began his career as a fashion designer, establishing "The House of Harold." By 1960, he was well-established as a local designer in Columbus, and during the 1970s and early 1980s, he collaborated with several local theatre groups as a costume designer. Curmode died in 1989.
