William B. Whitney scrapbook containing items collected during his freshman and sophomore years at Amherst College. Formats of the contents vary from printed materials (such as invitations, programs, tickets, receipts, clippings, and schedules) to handwritten materials (like letters and course notes) to other ephemera (such as flowers, fabric, billiard cloth, ribbons, and cigarette packets). Whitney has written annotations adjacent to some included items. Materials provide glimpses into student life at Amherst College. Some items pertain to student groups like the Social Union, Alexandria, Athenæ, Glee Club, or the College chapter (Sigma) of Delta Kappa Epsilon. Other materials relate to academics, personal finances, physical statistics, or to local and college events such as Mountain Day, lecture courses, athletic competitions, commencement, and musical performances. Some included items are from or pertain to students of Smith College and Mount Holyoke Female Seminary.
