Mothers’ Day Visit by the Dionne Quintuplets

Saturday, May 8, 1943

In today’s world of multiple births, quintuplets don’t get the press they used to. Remember “Octomom”? But in the 1940’s, the Canadian-born Dionne quintuplets, now nine years old, were a huge deal. They were going to Wisconsin where each of the girls would christen a freighter destined for use by the British Admiralty. This Pathe video is a perfect way to launch your Mothers Day weekend.
