Jeanette S. Markham Scrapbook, 1885-1889; item description, dates. SC 33, folder #. Radcliffe College Archives, Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.


Jeanette Markham attended classes at Racliffe between 1884 and 1887 but did not graduate. She stayed at the home of Thomas Wentworth Higginson. Her scrapbook seems to indicate an interest, in music and the fine arts.
Markham was the founder and first principal of the Buckingham School in Cambridge.


This collection presents a fascinating portrait of social life in upper-class Cambridge during this period. It contains programs, exhibition catalogues, correspondence, views of Harvard and Radcliffe, invitations, poetry, examinations, and pressed flowers.
