Fulton Book Club Yearbooks Donated to Society’s Library Archive

Janie Comer of Fulton recently donated a collection of Fulton Book Club yearbooks to the society’s archives. This collection of books covers the years 1947 through 1958. This collection belonged to Letha Ferguson Comer of Fulton.

Each book contains a list of officers, committees and members of the 25-member women’s organization. In addition, the minutes of each monthly meeting for the preceding year were published. The Fulton Book Club motto was “Only a book, Be it Good or Wrought, Can Never by Tongue or Pen be Taught. It Ran Through the life, Like a Thread of Gold, and Rendered Fruit a Thousand Fold.” The club colors were blue and gold.

This collection will be housed in the Gaither Spradling Library at the George Poteet History Center, headquarters of the Itawamba Historical Society. The society would like to thank Janie Comer for this gift that will enhance the society’s archival collection.
