Scrapbooks, 1931-1979

Salt Lake City School District (Utah) South High School


Arrangement is chronological.
These are the scrapbooks for South High School. They were used to document school activities. They have been used extensively by the alumni for planning reunions. They were maintained sporadically by the school and do not cover the school's entire history. They contain: newspaper clippings of athletic, social and historic events, copies of flyers and programs, posters, invitations, letters, name tags, and photographs. By the mid 1960s, these scrapbooks were created by the school historian. A South High Association of Girls (SHAG) History (1932, 1936-39) is included. Also included are two 45-rpm records, one featuring dance music. The other is "a recording of memorable events, 1954-1955, taken as they happened." Missing from the series are the following scrapbooks: 1941/42, 1944/45, 1949-52, 1954/55, 1959/60, 1960-67, 1975/76, 1982/83, 1986-88.
