Aprons such as this one were given to donors to the Boston-area public broadcast station, WGBH. Familiar with the university fundraising operations’ use of thank you gifts (known as premiums), WGBH began offering thank you gifts to supporters in the 1970s. The signatures of several personalities on the station’s shows, including Julia Child, have been printed on the apron.
