The Autograph Book of Kathleen Maude Shearman (Record Group/Fonds 795)

This book was found in 1957 by Janet Bryers while she was browsing with her grandfather in an antique store on King Street East in Hamilton. Ms. Bryers kept the autograph book in her possession until 2001 when she decided to donate it to the Ryerson University Archives, after having researched and written an article for the newsletter of a local historical society. The autograph book originally belonged to Kathleen Maude Shearman of Hamilton, who attended the Toronto Normal School in the Second Session in 1887. It contains the autographs of most of Ms. Shearman’s classmates.
