Edith Capper Eustice (1877-1953) Scrapbook
Scope and Contents
The collection consists of a facsimile copy of Edith Capper Eustice’s scrapbook, dating from the period circa 1903-1910, and containing photographs of Northwestern University and Evanston, Illinois academic, residential, and ecclesiastical buildings; interior photographs associated especially with Northwestern University-related living units and often depicting the domestic and social activities of female students; photographs of Sheppard Field and of the Northwestern University Marching Band; photographs of Capper and Eustice family and friends; photographs related to personal travel; and photographs from the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, the St. Louis world’s fair of 1904.
