Scrappin’ Valley Collection

.5 cubic feet

The Scrappin’ Valley Collection consists of loose photographs, a scrapbook, and seven guest books from the years 1963-2013. Originally established as a hunting lodge for Temple Lumber Company’s Pineland employees, Scrappin’ Valley became a meeting place and a weekend getaway for Temple executives, customers, suppliers, and friends, including Lady Bird Johnson and Congressman Charlie Wilson. After the 1973 merger, Time Incorporated President Jim Shepley brought customers to the lodge and conference center for hunts and weekend parties. The guest books contain the signatures of these notable guests, as well as the Sportsman of Boggy Slough.
