The Roslyn Elementary School scrapbooks and photographs, circa 1953-1996, consist primarily of scrapbooks, with a few photograph albums of class pictures. Most scrapbooks in this collection contain photographs, newspaper clippings, and flyers. One album from the 1960s appears to have been created by a teacher or administrator, and includes board minutes, correspondence, and ephemera. Some scrapbooks were created by the Roslyn Parent-Teacher Association. There is at least one scrapbook from Roslyn Preschool. The collection also includes a few photograph albums of class pictures.
Summary descriptive information on this collection was compiled in 2011-2012 as part of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania’s Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories (HCI-PSAR), using data provided by the Old York Road Historical Society. The HCI-PSAR project was funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
This is a preliminary finding aid. No physical processing, rehousing, reorganizing, or folder listing was done in the HCI-PSAR project.
