This collection includes nine clippings scrapbooks created by Wilson H. Green. The first six scrapbooks, with clippings dating from 1897 to the early 1930s, were pasted over clothing catalogs from the 1920s-1930s. There is also a box with loose newspaper clippings organized by author. The newspaper clippings focus on local news events and society announcements, but there are also some national and international items; all are arranged chronologically.
The collection also includes various unidentified family photographs, including a tintype and four cased photographs, circa 1860-1920.
Gift of Holly K. Green, 2003.
