This photograph album follows David Cope Elkinton's junior year abroad as he travelled with a group of friends through pre-WWII Europe and the Mediterranean. The album covers the years 1934 and 1935, though the album is non-chronological and omits large periods of time.
The Francis Barton Gummere songbook and notebooks consists of three volumes of papers created by Gummere. There is a songbook created during his time at Haverford College in addition to his notebooks on Germanic life and the philosphy of Baruch Spinoza.
Howard Haines’s autograph book contains five categories: Faculty, Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshman. Each entry includes basic information on members of these categories, except in the case of the faculty, which was left almost entirely blank. His composition book contains several essays concerning animals, historical and contemporary figures, national histories, and notes on several scientific and mathematical subjects.
The collection contains calculations of the eclipse of the sun for May 1854 created by Robert Bowne Haines in 1844 as part of his coursework at Haverford School (now Haverford College).
The autograph album was created during Haines's time at Haverford College. The book contains signatures of his peers and professors from 1858. Haines left the College to later become a lieutenant for the 121st Regiment in the Pennsylvania Volunteers from 1862 to 1863.
This album contains about ten entries of autographs that were pasted into a volume between 1868 and 1871. These entries contain people's names and sometimes the date and their college affiliation. Most of the entries in this album are song lyrics. At the bottom of the lyrics are names of Haverford students, the year the lyrics were added to the album, their graduation year, and their hometown.
