Object Name scrapbooks
Scope & Content calling card; trade card, color; greeting card; newspaper clippings

REMARKS:Collection of scrapbooks, containing principally trade cards advertising various products. The books also include Easter greeting cards, and various calling cards from members of the Beckley, Pinkston, and Stearns families. These cards are not indexed or separately identified; they are glued onto pages of the scrapbooks among larger trade cards.; This collection was identified by Kathleen Stavec as "FIC 33", but the description for the Beckley gift states that "Four rememberances" [sic] were included in that gift. "Remembrance" can be a synonym for "scrapbook".
