Language of Materials
The Yearbooks & Journals Series consists of 3 yearbooks from George Washington University (1928, 1929, and 1931), all belonging to Mae Harris Clarke; 3 yearbooks from Brown University (1913, 1914, and 1915) of unknown connection to the families; and 3 journals. The first journal is a ledger kept by James Charles Rogers about real estate transactions made by him from about 1904 to 1910. Another journal is the album of Mary "Mollie" Bowman (1856) and appears to be a collection of dedications and poems written to a young woman during her last year in high school by friends and teachers. Bowman's connection to the Rogers and Clarke families is unknown. The third journal is unidentified and contains poems about Christmas (1950s?).
