This digital collection contains twelve scrapbooks dated 1911 to circa 2010 compiled from several archival collections in the Colorado State University (CSU) Archives. Common topics include CSU’s pre-Title IX Women’s Recreation Association, student hiking and outdoor clubs, and CSU alumni experiences. Of particular note are the 1958 booklet “My Day at CSU,” documenting Eleanor Roosevelt’s visit to campus to receive an honorary doctorate and watch her grandson Tony Roosevelt graduate, and a local history scrapbook on the history of the Overland Trail stage station at Virginia Dale.
