Journalist, author. A. H. Tarvin, who was apparently a writer in Louisville, wrote columns and articles for the Louisville Herald Post and the Louisville News and Enquirer, many of which are contained in this scrapbook.
The collection is composed of news clippings concerning Kentucky and national politics, the theater in Louisville, Kentucky, trivia about Louisville and its history and baseball. Included are articles on Kentucky politics and a substantial collection about the 1920 Senatorial campaign of Richard P. Ernst (1858-1934), who defeated J. C. W. Beckham (1869-1940) in a campaign noted for its attempts to appeal to first-time women voters.
