Scrapbook of Ethel Barguet

by Barguet, Ethel (1891 – 1901)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Scrapbook of Ethel Barguet was compiled between 1891 and 1901. Barguet, who was an 1891 graduate of the Fifth Avenue Grammar School in Mount Vernon, New York, worked as a "play room teacher" with the Children's Aid Society in New York City. Barguet was also invited to continue her work with the Episcopal City Mission in Boston. The scrapbook consists of invitations to social gatherings in upstate New York, New York City, and Long Island, stamps, collections of phrases and writing, hair clippings, and flower pressings. While the last quarter of the scrapbook appear empty, there is at least one poem written on a folded sheet of paper.
