Little Lester's Autograph Album

Among the Lester Harms collection was a little autograph album, probably given to him as a gift at Christmas 1910. Lester was only six years old, so it's not surprising that all the autographs were supplied by female relatives.

His grandmother, Anna Harms, was the first.

Technically, she was his step-grandmother, but somehow I don't think either of them cared about that distinction.

Here is the cover of the album:

(Doesn't that look like a boom box he's carrying?)

Inside the cover, an inscription not made by a six-year-old:

And the title page:

(More to come.)
