 Collection
Identifier: H14-1866

Scope and Contents

The Habink collection consists of academic essays spanning her time at both Flora Macdonald College and Hope College; the few dated papers of this variety indicate they were written in 1919 for an English class at the former, but likely span her entire four years of college. Some undated documents appear to be from the years following her graduation. Other undated school related documents appear to be notes and outlines, as well as poetry and scripture written out for memorization. There are also two lesson plans, "For Primary Children" presumably from her time in Winnebago, Nebraska. Additionally, there are assorted clippings of quotes and articles from a variety of publications. Some of these clippings have been arranged in a partially filled scrapbook while the rest are loose. Finally, there is an edited draft of a speech "The Situation is Excellent-We Will Advance" labeled June 17, 1925, Commencement, Josh M. Hogenboom.

Contents are sparsely dated and therefore labeled broadly based on biographical information available. Folders are dated in best approximation of what period of Habink’s life they were likely written or collected.
