HISTORICAL NOTE

Mae Anderson grew up in Monmouth, Illinois. She attended Augustana College in Rock Island between 1918 and 1925 and obtained a degree in English. She stopped attending school after her sophomore year, but returned in 1923 and completed her degree in 1925. Anderson was involved in Women's Club, Phrenokosmian Society, and Berean Bible Society while at Augustana.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The Mae Anderson papers date from 1900 to 1925 and measure three linear inches. The records consist of newspaper clippings and a scrapbook.

The Newsprint Materials series contains newspaper clippings and other loose, printed materials dating from 1900 to 1917. It includes news articles covering the topics of lifestyle, fashion, entertainment, and consumerism. There are also examples of music lessons, sewing lessons, and handwriting practice.

The Scrapbook series consists of Mae Anderson's Augustana College scrapbook. Materials include pictures of school life for students in the early 1900s era. Student social life is particularly focused on various events and parties attended by Mae Anderson. Although there are a few years in which Mae Anderson did not attend Augustana, these are not indicated in the scrapbook.
