Eight volumes of clippings compose the Hannah Easley Faw Scrapbooks, [ca. 1890s-1920s], documenting the interests of Faw and her daughter Hannah Marjorie Faw at the turn of the 20th century. Comprising newspaper clippings of poems, short stories, essays, and news stories, the volumes relate to topics including entertainment, religion, education, prohibition, and Texas history.
