Description

Maude Lehman Liersch (1895-1977) assembled this scrapbook to document several trips she took with her husband Joe, a physician and son of one of Kansas City's pioneer druggists. The bulk of the scrapbook is comprised of a road trip the Lierschs took with friends Adolph "Ado" or "Otto" F. (1884-1961) and Neva Wiedenmann Seidel (1890-1979) from October 27-November 9, 1945. The quartet began in their hometown of Kansas City, Missouri and circled the Midwestern, Southeastern, and Southwestern United States. The trip is richly illustrated with photographs, postcards, clippings, and pamphlets. The scrapbook also documents a short trip to St. Louis to attend the Grand Court Order of the Amaranth, a Masonic organization which Joe was a Grant Trustee in, from April 4-5 1946; a trip with friends to lake Ozark May 4-5 1946, and an Amaranth pilgrimage to Lincoln, Nebraska. 64 pages.
