Lillian E. Hawley (1887-1970) Scrapbook

 Collection
Identifier: 31/6/69

  • Staff Only
The Lillian E. Hawley Scrapbook consists of several loose pages (perhaps removed from a larger scrapbook) that document her years at Northwestern. The pages include ribbons, seals, and invitations, all of which attest to her involvement in various campus organizations and her attendance at events such as performances and dinners. Hawley also saved the receipts for her tuition payments to Northwestern; her room and board payments for Pearsons Hall; and her class dues and her dues to the Laurean Literary Society.

Few items are captioned, so that some of the contents of the scrapbook, such as a pair of paper flowers and an ink portrait of a young woman in a graduation cap, remain a mystery. A pasted-in sketch of a nose pressed to a grindstone may indicate that Hawley had a reputation as a “grind.” One page contains a collection of logos and seals from different schools and the bookstores of those schools, including the Elgin Academy and Northwestern. There are a few pages of autographs, mostly without comments. One page chronicles Hawley's acceptance in Epsilon Iota, a “secret society” of senior girls.

A folder contains items that became detached from the scrapbook pages.
