Series I: Scrapbooks, 1850-1917

Call Number: WA MSS S-1317, Series I

Scope and Contents

Series I, Scrapbooks, is organized into thirteen subseries, one for each scrapbook. Pages in these bound volumes were frequently layered with multiple items. Unpaginated photographs, sketches and printed ephemera were also interleaved. Material is arranged to approximate these complex physical relationships. Folder titles refer to the pagination of the bound volume, not the amount of material in folder. Dates are for the principal material. Volumes I-III are primarily correspondence. Volumes IV-X include journal entries. Volumes XI-XII are a mixture of correspondence, journal entries and printed materials. Volume XIII is predominantly printed material: invitations, programs, and other works.
