Nancy Truog scrapbook featured in Archives Month blog

Today Tuesday, October 27, the Nancy Truog Scrapbook is being featured in the Archives Month blog. Another of the many scrapbooks in the Wisconsin Historical Society’s expansive holdings, Nancy Troug’s scrapbook, kept from 1927 to 1939, is an intimate portrait of family life in Madison in the early 1900s. Presumably started as a baby book, it is also a journal detailing birthdays, holidays, and family vacations which Nancy was a part of. It contains many greeting cards, postcards, clippings, souvenirs, report cards, and other memorabilia, along with notes of people and places visited by the family.
