VCGS: Free Workshop - Autograph Albums - Carley and Don Worth

Saturday, September 16 from 2:30 – 4pm, Community Room

Traditionally, autograph albums were exchanged among friends, colleagues, and classmates to fill with poems, drawings, personal messages, small pieces of verse, and other mementos. Their modern derivations include yearbooks, friendship books, and guest books. They were particularly popular among students and young adults in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Carley and Don Worth will give a brief history of these mementos and describe their search for living members of the family of two women whose long lost autograph books were recently donated to VCGS.
