Diary and scrapbook kept by Lucy Shuttleworth Dunlap (31 Mar 1898 - 7 Aug 1983), a student at Morgantown High School and at West Virginia University. Dunlap kept the diary between 1918 and 1921. Diary entries mainly regard Dunlap's social life (including dances, dates, movies, and travel) and personal feelings (including friendships, family, and romantic relationships). Entries of note regard an outbreak of Spanish Influenza in Morgantown (5 October 1918), the end of World War I (November 1918), and seeing Geraldine Ferrar in concert (1 November 1919). The scrapbook contains material from 1913-1921, with most of the material dating from 1916-1921. Like the diary, the scrapbook mainly regards Dunlap's social life, containing invitations; dance cards; programs for plays, concerts, and school commencements; bridge tallies; party favors; placecards; and news clippings regarding social events. The scrapbook also contains two black and white photographs of groups of young women, likely including Dunlap (1917), as well as pressed flowers. Dunlap was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma women's fraternity and the diary and scrapbook frequently mention Greek Life events.
