1887/1888 Autograph Album of Students at Farmington State Normal School, Farmington, Maine


1887/1888 autograph album filled with the names of students at Farmington State Normal School at Farmington, Maine.  

The album is approximately 8" x 7", with velvet covers and the word "Album" in metal.

This institution is now known as the University of Maine Farmington.


The album may have been owned by the first person whose name appears in it, Hattie B. Peabody of Lewiston, Maine, but I can't be sure.  Her name is on the page following the title page above.  Sadly, none of the autographs are inscribed to someone.


Many students signed individual pages, but there are over ten pages with multiple signatures on them.


Complete list of signers, in alphabetical order:  Be aware that Farmington, Maine, may not have been the actual hometown of some of the signers but rather where the signing took place.
