Wyatt Scrapbook - A Service of Worship – Nashville YWCA - c1930

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.

Whether she was an employee or a resident there, the Nashville YWCA was evidently an important part of Laurine Wyatt’s life. The worship program shown in the images below was saved intact in her scrapbook. The last image—a page entitled “Your Y.W.C.A. Statistics for 1929”—was inserted in the program. Individuals named in the program include Miss Anna Louise Mills, President of the Y.W.C.A. Leaders Council, and Miss Helen A. Davis.

  1. Because I'm such a curious kinda gal, I looked Ms. Wyatt up on Ancestry. According to the 1940 Census, she was working at the Baptist Sunday School Board, which is now Lifeway. I worked there for 10 years. Have you had any inquiries of any of her family?

  2. Hi, again, Sharon, I did find Laurine in the 1940 census. I had come to the conclusion that she had worked for the church in some way. I have not yet had any inquiries of her family.
