Dad's Altered Book

(LM Archive)

Last night while visiting my parents, my mom told my sisters and I that she had found some of our Girl Scout troop scrapbooks (1960s!). Digging through the albums in the bookcase we came upon a book of my Dad's...and it was an altered book! Back in his college days, he had taken an old textbook and used the pages to adhere newspaper clippings, pictures, napkins, postcards, etc. It was SO COOL! We found 1940s stuff from the Rex ball, several years worth of ticket stubs (Sugar Bowl, LSU, Tulane, etc.) and hundreds of pictures of co-eds. WTG Dad!
