Scrapbooks created by a Contra Costa Hills Club and Sierra Club member
Amy Deeter was born in Michigan. She married Conrad Askerberg of Detroit in 1914; the couple divorced in San Francisco in 1927. Deeter worked as a stenographer in San Francisco, and hitchhiked from San Francisco to Yosemite and back with her friend Norah Roberts in 1924. Roberts married Thomas F. Maddick, and Amy and Norah remained friends until Amy's death. Deeter was a storyteller, and an officer of the Golden Gate Story League in San Francisco during the time she created these scrapbooks.
