The Colleagues, founded in 1950, is a non profit LA corporation of sixty-five women who support and raise funds for the Children's Institute International's fight to end child abuse and neglect. Members include Nancy Reagan, Betsy Bloomingdale, and several members of the Doheny family. The Colleague Gallery in Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, sells items donated by members and others to raise funds for C.I.I. The bag was purchased by the present owner at the Colleagues Gallery in 1998, and is identified as "Ronald Reagan Riding Bag / Leather." The owner was informed that the bag had been donated by Mrs. Reagan, and that it had been used at the Reagan Ranch.
