A lovely autograph and sketch book given to Dorothy Borrajo by her classmates as a souvenir when she left school in 1907. The interior cover has a pasted in list of all of Dorothy's classmates. Throughout the sketchbook there are numerous drawings and poems written by her friends from 1907 to 1915. Drawings are in pencil, ink, color pencil and watercolor.
