1870s Autograph Album of Bertha Lovell of Osterville, Massachusetts; student at Winthrop School in 1875 and then at Framingham State Normal School

1875+ autograph album that belonged to Bertha Lovell (1861-1941) of Osterville, Massachusetts, with inscriptions acquired:
  • at the Winthrop School for Girls in Boston, Massachusetts
  • at Framingham State Normal School in Framingham, Massachusetts
  • in her home area of Osterville, a village in Barnstable, Massachusetts


Bertha was born in 1861, the daughter of Russell Lovell and second wife Eliza Robbins (Goodspeeed) Lovell and was married in 1898 at Osterville, Massachusetts, to Samuel Worthington Hallett (1858-1929).  At the time of their marriage, Bertha was a teacher and Samuel, a superintendent of schools.


The album measures approximately 8" by 5-1/4" and contains the sentiments of over 100 of Bertha's relatives, friends, schoolmates and possibly teachers.  An alphabetical list of the inscribers appears below. 

Many of the sentiments were full of reminiscences of school and adventures, with some pages full to overflowing, such as the 2-1/2 page sentiment left by F. E. C., shown below.  Could F. E. C. have been Florence E. Cummings of New Bedford, Massachusetts, presumably also a student at Framingham State Normal School, who left another sentiment?




Florence E. Cummings of New Bedford, Massachusetts; inscribed at Framingham, Massachusetts, on January 1, 1879

1870s-1892 autograph album that belonged to an Ida, perhaps an Ida from Beverly, Massachusetts, and presumably a telegraph operator for the Eastern Railroad. Ida may have been a member of the Webber family of Beverly, Massachusetts.

The album is in poor condition, with missing covers and perhaps some missing pages. It measures approximately 8" by nearly 5" and contains the sentiments of at least 42 of Ida's coworkers and friends.  An alphabetical list of the inscribers, together with any personal information they offered, appears at the end of this list.

Some inscribers mentioned shared adventures, too lengthy to share here.
