Autograph Book of Valentine Hummel Berghaus, Class of 1864

AR.2008.109

This leather bound and gilt-embossed autograph book belonged to Valentine Hummel Berghaus, Class of 1864. Nearly each page in the book is filled with messages from Berghaus’ classmates. Although the binding of the book is in poor condition, its individual pages are in excellent shape (see the images below). The book will be sent to the conservation lab for repairs and then it will be added to the Autograph Book Collection. Autograph books document student life at Princeton University in the 19th century.
