These pages are from the first of two autograph books belonging to my great-grandfather, Elton Lee Dunham (1873-1953). Entries date from 1882, when he was nine, to 1896, the year he married.
The earliest autograph is that of Elton's teacher, Ellen P. Kimball, and is dated December 1882. It is likely that the book was a gift from her.
