Abstract:

This is a collection of miscellaneous scrapbooks compiled either by private individuals or by Lexington Public Library staff. They are comprised primarily of newsclippings on a variety of subjects primarily related to the Lexington, Kentucky area.

Included in the scrapbook collection are several (1906-1946; 7 v.) compiled by Anna Chandler Goff, founder of the Lexington College of Music. Goff, a Winchester, Kentucky, native and sister of portrait artist Sudduth Goff, was a graduate of the New England School of Music who opened a music studio in Lexington in 1906. By 1916 it had grown into the Lexington College of Music. She was the founder and director of the Artist Concert Series (ca. 1920-1946) which brought performers such as Pablo Casals, Vladimir Horowitz, and the Isadora Duncan Dancers to Lexington. Scrapbooks include College of Music recital announcements, programs, and advertisements; newsclippings on prominent students and teachers; several photographs of Goff and the college; concert series membership fliers; clippings of news reports on performances; performance handbills; telegrams; and other miscellaneous memorabilia.

Other scrapbooks include clippings on Prohibition from the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR (1927; 1 v.); genealogical queries from the BOSTON TRANSCRIPT (1938-1940; 6 v.); a collection of central Kentucky obituaries (1939-1940; 1 v.; ca. 2,800 items) compiled by Lexington Daughters of the American Revolution member Jessamine Newman; and a collection of funeral announcements (1806-1911; ca. 1,800 items) collected by Cyrus Parker Jones, a black Lexingtonian who was paid to deliver such announcements and a name index of the announcements created by library staff. Also present is a scrapbook compiled by Moses Kaufman, a Lexington banker and member of the library board. The scrapbook contains miscellaneous clippings, (1870s) many of which are related to horse racing and other sporting events, along with occasional handwritten notes and recipes.

Scrapbooks presumed to have been created by library staff include avolume on the dedication of the Henry Clay home, Ashland (1950); and clipping scrapbooks on Bluegrass houses (1938), local horse farms (1940, 1958), Lexington and Fayette County churches (1948-1950), Kentucky history (1930s), and other "miscellaneous" topics. These are almost entirely taken from Lexington newspapers.
