Washington Squires Polo Club [cover title]
Unpublished, ca. mid-1950s-1963. Various bindings and loose sheets. Three-ring binder, notebooks, loose sheets, etc. Mostly handwritten in mostly the same hand, a few typed. The activities of the Washington Squires Polo Club (a youth club) are only one of the topics here. Photo of cover is cropped. Good. Item #31412
Appealing documentation of a child's obsession and involvement with horses for several years. Lists of horses and riders s/he knew; games at polo club and school; compositions about horses; records of wages earned for helping at the barn; lists of horse books; poems; information about horses; and much more. A few sheets were evidently typed by an adult, such as a long account of "The Joint Hunt with Blue Ridge in Virginia Saturday Dec. 5, 1959" and "One Hundred and One Horsey Happenings," e.g. "Baby Doll pulled the line down," "Slightly plastered man rode Sheila," and "Arnold makes seven goals in one game." Lots and lots of names here--someone could have fun identifying the youngsters and seeing what became of them. The activities were based in Virginia; there is also a list of horses at Dana Hall,1957-59 (Wellesley, MA). Lee Mauck was probably a girl; some papers are in other hands. Shipping/handling will be extra; please keep this in mind when ordering.
