Mark Twain in the West: An Exhibition
Writing for the Enterprise

Western Scrapbooks

These scrapbooks in the Mark Twain Papers are filled with clippings from the Western years, including Nevada Territory items of interest to Orion Clemens or written by him, and Samuel Clemens’s newspaper writing (pieces from the Golden Era, the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, the San Francisco Call, and the Californian, among others). They were kept mostly by Orion and doubtless also by Mollie Clemens, with contributions and occasional notes by Sam Clemens.
