The collection consists of H. Nelson Morrell’s Norwich University scrapbook or “memory book” as well as photographs from Nelson’s time as a Norwich student. The scrapbook includes the autographs and comments of friends but has little other information from Nelson’s time at Norwich. There are also nine files of photographs including images of athletics, the campus, faculty and staff, fraternities, Northfield, student activities and portraits of fellow students, most of which were taken during Morrell’s tenure as photographic editor of the War Whoop.
