Feminist Inquiry - Archival Resources: Scrapbooks

This guide was originally created for Tamara Beauboeuf's WS 240 class


Scrapbooks provide an interesting look at the life of the person who made them. Student scrapbooks were popular in the first half of the twentieth century, particularly the teens and twenties. Containing poems, sketches, photographs, clippings, inscriptions from friends, programs, tickets, dance cards, place cards, flowers, leaves and locks of hair, scrapbooks are the evidence of what was important to the owner. In combination with other manuscripts such as letters and diaries, these scrapbooks provide a good view of life at DePauw University.
