1891 Autograph Album of Alice Marshall, Presumably Providence, Rhode Island; Class of 1891


Autograph album with inscriptions from 1891 that belonged to Alice Marshall, presumably of Providence, Rhode Island, in the Class of 1891.  I believe this was the Class of 1891 at Providence High School, but one inscriber mentioned C.S.C.


The album, overstuffed and diamond-shaped, measures approximately 5-1/2" by 5" and contains the sentiments of 45 of Alice's friends and classmates.  An alphabetical list of the inscribers, together with any personal information they offered, appears at the end of this post.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Alice Marshall may have been Alice Mitchell Marshall, born November 7, 1877 in Rhode Island, the daughter of Andrew and Eliza Marshall.  This Alice married Hugh Albert Walker on May 27, 1902.  The couple had at least two children before Alice's untimely death in 1910.  She's buried in the Pocasset Cemetery at Cranston, Rhode Island.

If you have corrections to the information above, if you feel that Alice Marshall was a different person, or if you have information on any of the inscribers listed below, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
