A Treasure Found!

While visiting the antiques mall in Carson yesterday, a friend found a wonderful old scrapbook. I couldn’t resist purchasing it! It appears to have belonged to a woman named Laurine Wyatt and includes items from about 1930 to 1945. There are no photographs, but quite a few newspaper clippings (undated and without the name of the newspaper), numerous items related to the YWCA of Nashville, Tennessee, and two letters of a personal nature. I’ll be scanning, transcribing and sharing the contents here over the next few weeks. Here is a photo of the scrapbook and of Laurine’s name from the inside of the front cover.
