    Through the generosity of Mr. Richard Lee, son of Ruth Cain Lee, and photographer William Mills, we are very pleased to make available a PDF of Ruth Cain Lee's 1915-1916 scrapbook, created when she was a student at Chevy Chase College. Mr. Lee had already allowed CCHS to photocopy several pages of this precious scrapbook in 2007, but by allowing CCHS volunteer William Mills to photograph each page in 2014, we were able to create a combined PDF file of the entire scrapbook.

    It took us a little longer than we expected, but now everyone can view the entire document without further damage to its fragile pages.  Click to see dance cards, recital programs, pamphlets, and photographs that Ruth Cain wanted to remember, including some great photographs of cadets at Annapolis!
