[Amy Newsom scrapbook]

Description: Loose pages of a scrapbook that belonged to Amy Newsom, a student of North Texas State Normal College in the 1910s. Many of the photographs depict Newsom and other female students who resided in the Gallagher House, a boarding house in Denton, Texas. These photos show the students studying, posing in front of the house, exercising, and participating in other social activities around campus and Denton. "Ma and Pa" Gallagher, presumably the owners of the house, are also pictured as is William Bruce, the university president at the time. Individual photographs of Newsom's "friends and classmates" are featured and labeled either with first and last names or the individual's relationship to Amy. These individual photographs include photos of Amy Newsom and of her younger brother, Clyde Newsom. In addition to photos from Newsom's time in college, the scrapbook also contains photographs and postcards from a trip to Palacios, Texas, as well as "miscellaneous" photos of a house in Celina, Texas, and of a creek.
