Overview and metadata sections

Elizabeth Fauvre was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 1919 in Languages (French, Spanish, and Italian). She married R. Wynn S. Owen and had two children. She was active in civic organizations throughout her adult life and was a member of the Sewing Club for over 50 years. She also volunteered at the Riley Children's Hospital. Fauvre died in 1987.

The Elizabeth M. Fauvre (Owen) scrapbook houses the one volume scrapbook thought to have been created by Elisabeth M. Fauvre, Bryn Mawr class of 1919. The donor is unknown, but the album is presumed to be the property of Fauvre because of initials found taped to inside of a mortarboard in poor condition.

The scrapbook consists of one volume. The scrapbook contains very good examples of professional photography for dramatic productions by this class. There are also some miscellaneous photos mounted on paper that appear to have been used for reunions.

The scrapbook and its contents are in good condition. It would be of value to those interested in Bryn Mawr circa 1915-1919.

Received via campus mail from unidentified Bryn Mawr Campus department.
