Already established in the fashion industry but not quite a household name, McCardell was commissioned to design uniforms for the Office of Civil Defense Corps. Using non-rationed materials such as weather balloon cottons, aprons, and mattress ticking, McCardell embraced the opportunity for uniqueness, ultimately leading to the embedded American Look for women.

In 1828 Baltimore art patron and collector Robert Gilmor Jr. (1774–1848) met the young American sculptor Horatio Greenough in Washington, DC. Inviting Greenough to Baltimore, Gilmor commissioned a bust of his wife Sarah R. L. Gilmor, and soon thereafter funded Greenough’s return to Italy to continue his artistic training, commissioning the first ideal sculpture in American art history—Medora—depicting a character from a tale by Lord Byron.
