Frances Grimes Sitherwood (b. 1859) of Bloomington, Ill., maintained this scrapbook of correspondence, playbills, concert and commencement programs, and newspaper clippings from 1887 to 1922. The playbills and programs, some of which are loose, are from various events and performances throughout Illinois, including venues in Bloomington, Chicago, Normal, and Rockford. In addition, the collection documents Sitherwood's work as a teacher, including several character references and teaching certificates.
The Library bought the collection in 1931. It was previously cataloged as Q.792. Si86p.
