Louise Patterson and her mother, Mrs. Louise Hillard Patterson, lived at Coronado Beach in San Diego between 1915 and 1925. This scrapbook was created by Miss Louise Patterson, a student at Coronado High School. Originally from Baltimore, this mother and daughter resided at Coronado Beach and were both prominent local socialites. Miss Patterson's scrapbook documents life in high society from 1915 to 1925, and includes numerous invitations to bridge teas and other social functions from other San Diego socialites of the time. A large number of elaborate invitations to costume balls, dances, suppers, and teas from the management of the Hotel del Coronado are present, including invitations to the 1917 Black and White Ball and others.
