Sylvia Plath's Smith College Scrapbook

The following is a catalog of the items in Sylvia Plath's Smith College scrapbook held by the Lilly Library in Plath mss II, Oversize 8. As with Plath's high school scrapbook, it is heavily annotated with the memorabilia from her college years. The items here date almost exclusively from the fall of 1951 through early summer 1955, from Plath's sophomore year at Smith College through to her graduation from Smith College and preparation to leave for England on her Fulbright scholarship.

As with the high school scrapbook, the information here was obtained from 16-19 March 2015 on a research visit I made to the Lilly Library. The contents reflect what I saw and photographed at that time. Upon analyzing each page image, it was determined that several of the now loose items were found to be in the wrong folder and/or with the wrong page. So some items will appear in the list below with annotations about where it was photographed and where it should be belong. I used the same descriptors, too: Attachment, Clipping, and Photograph. By my counts, there are, or were, 319 items in the scrapbook: 58 Photographs, 233 Attachments, and 28 Clippings. Also, there are, or were, several missing items. I'm confident about 2 photographs and 1 attachment, and several items as mentioned above were probably/possibly in the wrong folder. There are four blank pages (1, 2, 87, and 88). Excepting the missing photograph of Richard Norton, each of the photographs has a date assigned to it. The dates are as accurate as I have been able to establish from the scrapbook, Plath's diaries, journals, letters, and other sources. Photographs have been described based on a list of photographs provided by the Lilly Library and my own observations.
