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.
“Chairman of Music for Mardi Gras
MRS. THOMAS H. MALONE, JR.
Mrs. Malone serves as chairman of music for the Children's Mardi Gras, to be presented Shrove Tuesday, at the Belmont Theater, under the auspices of the Rector's Aid Society of Christ Episcopal Church. An artistic program will be presented by the Colonial Trio composed of Alline Fentress, violinist; Vivienne Olsen, cellist, and Margaret Pittman Bowers, pianist. Funds derived from the entertainment are used for the support of St. Luke's Community House.”

- There are several men named Thomas H. Malone enumerated in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee. Based on my estimation of the age of the woman in this photo, I suspect that the correct family is that of Thom. H. Malone, lawyer, age 55, born in Tennessee. Others in the household are wife Mary C. (age 35, born in Tennessee), son Thom. H., Jr. (age 13, born in Tennessee), and mother-in-law Leta Robson (age 63, born in Tennessee). [Source: 1930 U.

- The name of the newspaper in which this photograph appeared and the actual date of publication are unknown.
- The relationship, if any, of Laurine Wyatt to the Thomas Malone family is unknown.
