For this week's long overdue Best of the Box, I discovered a lovely scrapbook by Theodora Mussey, a piano teacher at the University of Denver. Compiled between 1900 and 1902, the Mussey scrapbook contains a number of clippings including programs from Denver music recitals and concerts, church bulletins, invitations and travel memorabilia.
