Allen family scrapbooks, A1101

 Collection
Identifier: A1101

Scope and Contents

The Allen family scrapbooks consist of seven scrapbooks. Six belonged to Lloyd C. Allen, a 1925 graduate of Colgate University, and one to his brother Clyde. The scrapbooks mostly document Lloyd and Clyde's early years in Wellsville, New York and Lloyd's college years at Colgate, with the bulk of the material dating from the late 1910s and early 1920s. A much smaller amount of material related to their adult lives is also included. The scrapbooks include a significant number of photographs of both the local New York area and Colgate University, as well as clippings, postcards, programs, certificates, and ephemera.
