Darrow, Jesse Ohl : Darrow Family Scrapbooks, ca. 1881-1925

Four scrapbooks of newspaper clippings, school papers and a few pieces of memorabilia. Scrapbooks contain many articles by and about the career of Clarence Darrow; also, some articles referring to Greeley, Colorado, sometime home of Clarence Darrow's son Paul, and a collection of Paul's early school papers. Other clippings are miscellaneous articles about other Darrow family members. Two of the scrapbooks apparently were kept by Clarence Darrow's first wife, Jessie Ohl Darrow, one by her son Paul Darrow, and one by someone unknown, possibly Jessie.
