Althea “Bee” Moore was an undergraduate student at the University of Iowa (then known as the State University of Iowa) from 1924 to 1928. Very active socially, the scrapbook’s collection of photographs, clippings, invitations and concert programs reflect Moore’s wide acquaintance among the African American community of Iowa in the 1920s.

This scrapbook is from the collection of the African American Historical Museum & Cultural Center of Iowa, and through collaboration with the Iowa Women’s Archives, was digitized and is hosted by the Iowa Digital Library.
