Custodial History

Notes in the inside covers of this volume relate the history of its ownership. It was originally "presented as a memento of the past to my darling Sallie M. Taylor" according to the note on the inside cover, dated 1866, and signed by I. Shoemaker. A second note reads as follows: "Scrapbook of sketches made by Uncle Isaac Shoemaker and Cousin Walter Hinchman. At my death to be given to Lawrence N. Taylor." The scrapbook was then left to Haverford College in Lawrence N. Taylor's will.


The Isaac Shoemaker scrapbook was donated to Quaker & Special Collections, Haverford College, by Lawrence Taylor.
