Two illustrated student manuscript notebooks for courses in Physiology and Zoology by a young woman in Oregon, 1910


Chicago: 1922.

Two illustrated manuscript notebooks dated 1910. Created by Ida Narkaus (b.1889), the daughter of two Finnish immigrants living in Oregon state. Ida married Henry Sunnari on July 28, 1917. They moved to Alberta, Canada, where Henry died less than three months later. Ida returned to live with her parents in Oregon, working as a teacher. In 1921, she married Ernest Ghormley, a clerk from Tennessee, and is listed in censuses as a homemaker until 1950, when she is recorded working as a dishwasher at a restaurant. She died in 1967. The PhysiologyBoth notebooks are filled through the first 83 pages with manuscript text and illustrations, primarily in pencil and ink, with an occasional splash of color. The plain white cloth exteriors are soiled in a manner pleasing to fans of Robert Ryman. A nice set with interesting provenance, and a bit more specific and technical (and impressive) than many high school science notebooks.
