Robert A. Moller scrapbook

 Collection — Box: Box 1
Identifier: MSA 329
The Robert A. Moller scrapbook (1919-1920; .45 cubic feet) documents the student and military life of Purdue Chemical Engineering student Robert Moller. Most content is related to Moller’s personal acquaintances, though the scrapbook includes several photographs of Purdue campus and scenes around the Lafayette area. Because Moller withdrew from Purdue during his second year (February 1920), materials cover mostly first-year student experiences. Types of materials include: clippings (information artifacts), photographs, and publications (documents).
