I was going through some pictures, etc, that had been inherited from my mother, Evelyn A Scudder VanValkenburgh. I came on this Souvenir Booklet from May 21, 1909.
The cover is Quite elaborate. at the top, it says "Souvenir". Below, and to the right, is a picture, quite possibly of the school teacher that year. At the bottom is a verse:
That Blue and Bright-eted floret of the brook,
Hope's gentle gem, the sweet-forget'me-not------Coleridge.
The next page gives the following:
