A Guide to the Tarrant County Scrapbook, [ca. 1910-1955]
Comprised of newspaper clippings and pamphlets, the Tarrant County Scrapbook, [ca. 1910-1955], documents the social and political affairs of Tarrant County’s citizens from the early to mid-20th century. Although the county as a whole is represented, the vast majority of clippings from a variety of newspapers, including the Dallas Morning News and Fort Worth Star-Telegram, concern Fort Worth and its notable citizens. The collection contains alphabetized obituaries of Tarrant County’s citizenry, while also discussing local history, Fort Worth’s civic growth, and social issues. Additionally, the scrapbook includes a copy of a pamphlet entitled Frances Cooke Van Zandt Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas (1931-1932) and several issues of the Woman’s Wednesday Club pamphlet (1934-1935).
This collection is open for research use.
