Scope and Contents Note

The three scrapbooks from 1923 cover Carter’s trip to the International Congress of Master Printers in Gothenburg Sweden, June 4, 1923. They also detail his extensive travels in Europe. Letters and newspaper clippings throughout the collection reflect some of the European unrest following WWI and are helpful collectively in aquiring an informal impression of the period. Among Carter’s correspondents was Warren G. Harding.
