This scrapbook includes a compilation of newspaper clippings from a variety of sources and covers the mid-1930s. Approximately one-half of these clippings focus on stories related to St. Petersburg or Florida more broadly, while the remainder cover events as broad as English royalty to the Second Italo-Ethiopian War (1935-1936). The compiler of the materials in this scrapbook is unknown, though the name “Billy Dean” appears on this document. It is uncertain as to whether this was an actual proper name, or whether it was a nickname or pseudonym. Jen Runyon donated this scrapbook and another one that captures the activities for Emil August Nordstrom, a former city engineer, in spring 2013 after acquiring them from a source in the community. There are no access restrictions on this item.
