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.
The Wyatt scrapbook contains two newspaper clippings featuring a young woman named Clyde Partlow.
“Above—Miss Clyde Parthow on "Many Mac," and, below, Miss Elsie Caldwell, on "Me Too." Both girls appear in the Junior Horse Show at the state pavilion this week.” [The picture of Elsie Caldwell was not in the scrapbook.]
“MISS CLYDE PARTLOW, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Partlow, of Franklin, Tenn., on "So Charming." Miss Partlow is a member of the Junior Riding club sponsoring the Spring Horse show, May 8 and 9.—Photo by Bligh.”
- On the 1930 U.S. federal census, Clyde Partlow (age 15, born in Tennessee) is enumerated in Williamson County, Tennessee, with her parents Joseph D. Partlow (age 51, born in Tennessee, a farmer) and Elizabeth Partlow (age 47, born in Tennessee). Also residing in the household was Lou Critlow (servant, age 60, born in Tennessee).

- The name of the newspaper in which these photographs appeared and the dates of publication are unknown.
- The relationship, if any, of Laurine Wyatt to Clyde Partlow or her family is unknown.
