Exhibits top level
The VMI Archives collection includes many cadet scrapbooks, dating from 1910 through the 1950's; they were most popular in the 1920's. A typical scrapbook contains snapshots; memorabilia such as dance, athletic, and play programs; clippings from magazines and newspapers; and other items that reflect daily cadet life and the wider popular culture of the era. The example shown here was owned by Cadet Leopold von Schilling and covers the period 1922-1925.
