    Arthur G. Holmes, a graduate of Coronado High School, attended Stanford University from 1926 to 1928, where he was a member of the Glee Club and participated in YMCA activities.

    Scope and Content

    This collection consists of the scrapbook Holmes kept of his student days at Stanford University and UC Berkeley, as well as his summer as a forest ranger at Yosemite (1928) and a summer at the Flying Cadet school of the Air Corps (1929), along with negatives and some miscellaneous memorabilia . Included in the scrapbook are photographs, programs, decals, newsletters, dance cards, invitations, tickets, ribbons, cancelled checks, and many other items. Subjects of interest from his Stanford days are mudfights, the Glee Club spring tour in 1928, and student trips to the Pinnacles and Yosemite Park. There are also several pages devoted to his tour of the Orient in 1926.
    Since the scrapbook pages were made of wall paper samples and the cover of wood, it was disbound to protect the materials within. The pages have been numbered in sequence and foldered, with some subjects high lighted in the listing.
