Leah Jones Hurt Scrapbook

 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: MC 1413

Scope and Content Note

The scrapbook, at the time it was donated to the University of Arkansas Libraries, contained letters, picture postcards, photographs, newspaper clippings, miscellaneous printed material, and memorabilia which Leah Jones collected while at the University of Arkansas, as well as items dated before and after her sojourn at the University, e.g., a letter from her paternal grandfather (Dec 3, 1903), a letter from her mother (1934), letters to her husband (1950), and others. The condition of the scrapbook is very poor and most of the items were laid in between the pages. These loose items were removed from the scrapbook and arranged in separate folders.
