1891 Autograph Album of Ralph B. Leslie of El Dorado Springs, Missouri

Autograph album given to Ralph B. Leslie of El Dorado Springs, Missouri, by his father Willis Boyd Leslie in 1891.

Ralph's father, Willis Boyd Leslie, then signed the next page in the album in 1891.

Many pages are decorated with scraps, but the only other signed page was that inscribed by Ralph's cousin Clara of Nevada, Missouri.

The album is approximately 5" x 3-1/4" and shows evidence of rodent damage at the spine.

From online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome!]

Ralph B. Leslie was born 23 June 1883 in Missouri, the son of Willis Boyd Leslie and Martha A. (Norman) Leslie, "Mattie", who were born in Iowa and Indiana, respectively.

Sadly, Ralph died 8 October 1900.  His parents lost another lost other children before and after Ralph.
