    Notes 
    • Elizabeth was widely known for her theatrical designs. Along with her sculptor husband, Frank, she produced and designed the Haines Marionettes. Frank carved the the figures from wood and Elizabeth created the authentic costumes.

      After 30 years of presenting shows throughout the east, the Haines gave their complete collection to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, NY, now the National Museum of Design, which is a branch of the Smithsonian Museum.

      Elizabeth also lectured on wedding customes, costumes and the status of women throughout history. To illustrate these lectures, a series of 26 hand carved figures of brides were created by her and her husband.

      Fourteen represented authentic bridal costumes from 1600 B.C.(the Babylonian period, while 12 depicted historic American brides.
