This scrapbook, accession number 2018-35-1, is a collection of newspaper clippings. The vast majority of the clippings are unlabeled and unidentified as to the newspaper or the date. However, some of the clippings have handwritten dates on them identifying them to be from as early as 1931 to as late as 1950. The majority of dates are 1933. The donor of this scrapbook was Margaret Small.

The clippings primarily include marriage announcements and obituaries with many entries regarding the accomplishments of various Scarborough people.

In its 53 pages there are 74 instances of “Scarboro” six of “Dunstan,” 14 of “Oak Hill,” 22 of “Black Point,” 30 of “Pine Point,” and two of Higgins beach.

The scrapbook was scanned at 400 DPI, cropped as appropriate, and rotated as needed, then it was OCRed using FineReader and exported as a searchable PDF file on Digital Maine.
