Historical Note

Professor James Kelly brought the scrapbook from the University of Northern Iowa Sports Information Office to the University Archives in 2015.  The black scrapbook was damaged beyond repair or conservation when it arrived in the Archives.  But most of the photographs were in reasonably good shape.

Scope and Content

Lawrence Whitford, or someone in his family, apparently assembled this scrapbook while he was a student athlete at the Iowa State Teachers College in 1919 and 1920.  There was no inscription or labeling whatsoever in the scrapbook or on the photographs.  But the contents of the scrapbook lead to the almost inescapable conclusion that Mr. Whitford created it.  The scrapbook consists solely of photographs of Teachers College athletes and athletics teams from 1919 and 1920.  Many of the individual photographs are unidentified.
