Milton Academy autograph book shown at historical society |

An 1862 autograph book from Milton Academy made its way to Main Hall last year when descendants of former student Lucy Clarke brought the book back to Milton to share its unique contents.

Autograph books were popular items among Academy graduates during the mid-1800s prior to the introduction of full-blown college yearbooks. The books were often used by students to collect signatures, sentiments and reminiscences of friends, classmates and instructors.
