Container List

Series 12: Scrapbooks., circa 1860s-1945. 2.25 Linear Feet In 3 manuscript boxes and 2 oversize flat boxes.


The scrapbooks in this series are arranged alphabetically by topic and chronologically by earliest date within topic. Loose items that were falling out of scrapbooks were placed into folders which can be found alongside the scrapbook that the items came from.

Scope and Contents

The books in the Scrapbooks series contain clippings and ephemeral items related to the Church. The scrapbooks collect articles on the church's ministers and on religious and ecumenical matters. They also collect some published images, poems, hymns, and local news items. Several of the scrapbooks include clippings related to Plymouth Church and Henry Ward Beecher. Most of the scrapbooks seem to have been made by members of the church. The scrapbooks of items on the ministers Alfred E. Goodnough, H. Price Collier, and Samuel A. Eliot and the scrapbooks collecting the sermons of Collier were assembled and donated to the church by Maud Willard Bartlett. One other scrapbook ("Religion and Theology, 1866-1875") included a note that it came from the home of Mary E. Butterick in 1942.
