This scrapbook is undated, but is estimated to span years primarily from the 1970s to 1990s. The book contains photos and newspaper clippings related to members of the Scabbard and Blade, the ROTC's honor society. There are some captions (e.g. 1989-1990 Scabbard & Blade Initiation), but little descriptive information; last names of some individuals have been identified from the name badges on their uniforms. Activities pictured include grenade assault courses, rappelling, obstacle courses, weapons training, and initiations.
