The lost dress that was worn in 1939 by Judy Garland in the famous movie has been found finally.
The dress was found in a shoebox in a garage bag at the Catholic University of America, where it was donated in 1972. The dress hadn’t been seen since.
It was recently found by a Drama lecturer Matt Ripa. Explaining how he made the grand discovery, he wrote in a Catholic University press release: “I had looked in our archives, storage closets, etc. to no avail. I assumed it was a tall tale.” After a determined search, Ripa located a trash bag, and inside was a shoebox, and inside the shoebox was the dress.
University officials say they will now properly preserved and store the famous costume.
