Passion for Madame Alexander

I’m thrilled that Carie asked me to do a blog about the Madame Alexander Doll Club. It’s always a delight to talk about something you love. For those of you who are not familiar with MADC, it is an organization that was sanctioned by the Alexander Doll Company in 1961 under the leadership of President Margaret Winson of Missouri.

I’m thrilled that Carie asked me to do a blog about the Madame Alexander Doll Club. It’s always a delight to talk about something you love. For those of you who are not familiar with MADC, it is an organization that was sanctioned by the Alexander Doll Company in 1961 under the leadership of President Margaret Winson of Missouri. It started out as a correspondence club and remained that way until 1982 when Mrs. Winson retired. Officers were then elected and by 1985, by-laws were ratified by the membership and the club was incorporated. The purpose of MADC is to study, research, discuss and write about Madame Alexander dolls, to collect and preserve them and to conduct any and all activities that will promote the collection of these dolls. The Club works very closely with the Alexander Doll Company and hosts several annual events as well as publishing a newsletter four times a year, offering an exclusive club doll, and providing a delightful, informative website.

About a week ago, I received my packet for this year’s annual convention being held in Harrisburg/Hershey, Pennsylvania, August 5-8. All I can say is WOW! The convention team, chaired by Laura Colpus, has really outdone themselves. They have so many great events planned that I know we will be busy enjoying dolls and seeing friends for four straight days. I hope you will visit our website to see all the details. The web address is www.madc.org. You will find out a lot more about MADC and see pictures from both previous and future events. You can also contact our club office, which is located at the Alexander Doll Company by calling 212-368-1047 or by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
