1 MISS HELEN GERTRUDE SCHAFFTER 1916 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT SCHOOL MEMORIES JOURNAL - AN HOMAGE TO HIGH SCHOOL LIFE AND CHARMING RELIC OF PRE WORLD WAR I AMERICANA
ORRVILLE BAUGHMAN TOWNSHIP WAYNE COUNTY OHIO OH 1916 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is an original and unusual manuscript diary handwritten by Helen Schaffter who lived in Orrville, Baughman Township, Wayne County, Ohio. In this charming book, she kept memories of her school commencement, notes her class colors, class yell, motto, flowers, song, class officers, school faculty, amusements, autographs, sayings, poems, jokes, stunts and frolics, etc. She lists the commencement gifts that she received which include a ruby ring, gold jewel case, silk parasol, silk boudoir cap, ebony mirror, and more. Helen does a great job over 79 pages in this 6" x 9 1/4" book naming her friends and detailing their travels and otherwise painting a picture of life just before America entered the First World War. Adding depth to the narrative Helen has littered the book with ephemera: mementos, photos, her calling card and a Valentine cupid cut-outs, etc. There are a number of wonderful photographs of her too. Research suggests that Helen's parents were Paul A. Schaffter and Lucilla V. Schaffter and they were born in Switzerland. Her father was 51 years old, and her mother was 49 years old when she was born! She had an older sister named Ida.
