The College Scrapbook

One of the most delightful collections in the Whitworth Archives is the set of college scrapbooks that students kept in the early 1900s through the 1950s, donated by alumni and their families. The scrapbooks reflect the students’ college years in creatively personal illustrations, like no yearbook could; in fact, many scrapbooks feature photos cut out of yearbooks. Shown here is the variety of ways students commemorated special events, their classmates, and their journey through Whitworth.
