Fessenden Blanchard Scrapbook (1928-1940)

Blanchard kept two valuable scrapbooks covering the development of the game in the early years. This one covered the years through 1940. The second one covered 1928 – 1963 (the year of his death).

There is some considerable overlap in material between the two and this one has a number of historical photographs that have been “borrowed” by others in writing about the sport and have been lost.

Nevertheless, there is a fascinating tale being told in both books for those interested in the very early days of the game.
