About My Research

About My Research


I have been researching scrapbooking and memory keeping throughout the 20th century. I have been paying particular interest to collegiate scrapbooks from New Jersey College for Women which became known as Douglass College in 1955 after Mabel Smith Douglass, the college’s founder.

Rutgers University Special Collections houses many scrapbooks created by both men and women that can provide added depth to research projects relating to several different areas such as the history of women at Rutgers, military memory keeping, memory keeping, scrapbooking practices, social life, collegiate life, artifacts from the 20th century, etc.

Why Create this Research Guide?


My hope for this research guide is to provide researchers with the information to locate resources about scrapbooking and memory keeping. 

In addition, to aide researchers in identifying and accessing both physical and digital collections on this topic.
