DES MOINE IOWA WOMAN at HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE 1915-1923 PHOTO ALBUM
10” x 13” x 2” thick photo album/scrapbook with over 450 snapshots and loads of ephemera arranged in an artistic manner. The album was put together by Margaret M. Potter, who went to West Des Moines High School in Iowa, and went on to Monmouth College in Illinois and Drake University in Des Moines. The album dates from 1915-1923 and gives a good idea of what Margaret was like. She was a popular girl in both high school and college and was voted May Queen while in college. She was involved with the Sorority Delta Gamma and part of the Phi Gamma Club. There are some annotations, and there are several newspaper clippings that relate to school and her activities. Photos include images from the Iowa State Fair in 1917, hanging out with friends, children, and family, etc. There is even a photo of the house where she was born and lots of autographs from her friends.
