Wyatt Scrapbook - YWCA Officers and Directors

In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.

This is one of the numerous articles and documents related to the Y.W.C.A. contained in the scrapbook.


"–Banner staff photo.

"Newly elected officers and members of the directorate of the Y. W. C. A. are shown above, the picture being made Wednesday morning at the bi-monthly meeting.

"Reading from the left, they are: first row—Mrs. George Blackie, treasurer; Mrs. J. S. McHenry, corresponding secretary; Mrs. John R. Aust, president; Mrs. T. Graham Hall, vice-president; and Miss Ina Scherrebeck, general secretary. Second row—Miss Rebecca Porter, Mrs. W. G. Ewing, Miss Louise Young, Mrs. J. H. McClure, Mrs. A. J. Dyer. Third row—Mrs. Brown Buford, Miss Susie McWhirter, Miss Katherine Dibrell, Mrs. Weaver Harris and Mrs. W. F. Powell. Mrs. L. G. Durr, vice-president, and Miss Jennie Spark, recording secretary, are absent from the picture."

Note: It is likely this photo appeared in the Nashville (TN) Banner; however, the date of publication is unknown.
