This series contains scrapbooks belonging to John and Marguerite Storrs.

A scrapbook from the early 1900s also contains illustrations and advertisements from newspapers and magazines. A disbound scrapbook contains clippings about the dancer Maud Allan and other friends of Storrs as well as printed material from social events. Two additional scrapbooks contain news clippings and event announcements for the professional activities of both John and Marguerite Storrs. Also found in this series is a portfolio containing scattered items regarding the publication of Song of Myself with original wood engravings by John Storrs.
One additional scrapbook was created by John Storrs around 1945 for his daughter, Monique Storrs, to document her service as a nurse in World War II. The scrapbook includes many photographs, military documents, correspondence, and other records. The back of the scrapbook contained many loose documents concerning the same subject.
