Barbie: An American Icon with Rick Feingold

Barbie: An American Icon with Rick Feingold Online

In the 1950s, children could only play with baby dolls. There were no adult dolls. Then, Ruth Handler decided to invent a doll with adult features. The doll named Barbie was a “Teenage fashion model.” Barbie could be dressed in various fashion outfits and lived in a “Dreamhouse.” She had a boyfriend named Ken and drove a Corvette convertible. Barbie’s careers included doctor, astronaut, pilot, and even a matador.

Learn how the world’s most loved doll came to be. Barbie: An American Icon will be presented by Rick Feingold, lecturer in American Business History at Bergen Community College. He holds an MBA from Penn State University and a degree in History from Rutgers University.

This program is presented by the Greenburgh Public Library, John C. Hart Memorial Library, Somers Library, & Warner Library.
