dc.format.mediumScrapbook: Dura Louise Cockrell was a student at TCU from 1920-1924 and was the president of the Clark Literary Society. Her father was Egbert R. Cockrell, a history professor at TCU, beginning in 1899, when the campus was still located in Waco. He and his wife, Dura Brokaw Cockrell, who was the head of the TCU Art Department, moved with the campus to Fort Worth and served in these positions until 1922. E.R. Cockrell was also elected as the mayor of Fort Worth in 1921. Ms. Cockrell's scrapbook is organized a bit haphazardly and includes typical memorabilia such as invitations and flyers for events, cards, letters and autographs from friends and photographs. It also includes a few unusual items such as, what appears to be, a piece of uncooked pasta, a receipt showing she paid only $46.25 for her spring semester in 1921 and a lock of someone's hair. According to an article in Donna Jean Billington?s scrapbook (also featured in this collection), upon finishing her education, Ms. Cockrell decided to spend her life working at an orphanage in Missouri.
