Marcella Cram Papers

 Collection
Identifier: M/A 0092

Description of Contents

The scrapbook includes clippings, cards, postcards, memorabilia from North High School years, the University of Minnesota, and religious functions and activities. Also includes correspondence dating from 1961. Photos (1950s) include pictures of (perhaps) Leo and Yetta Cram, a car, Girl Scout troupe, possibly mothers of the Girl Scout troop. The photo of the Cadillac Coup Deville car has a story-it was won by Marcella’s father in a contest that sponsored by Gem Razor. Some of the loose material was removed from the scrapbook and put in box one. The book pages are in extremely poor-brittle condition. The cover of the scrapbook is two green painted boards-with hinged boards and held together by string.
