Account book of Laurens Watts Boyd

Manuscript volume, 1886-1890, account book of Laurens native Laurens Watts Boyd (1871-1898) details his expenditures and receipts while a student at the University of South Carolina. Boyd's expenditures typify those one would expect a young man on campus to incur and range from transportation expenses, textbooks and school supplies, food, clothing, laundry, and toiletries to Clariosophic Society and Psi Delta Theta fraternity dues and entertainment expenses, including opera and dance tickets. Boyd carefully balanced his expenditures and receipts year by year. His accounts show that Boyd's expenses increased from $236.35 in school year 1886-1887 to $445.00 in school year 1889-1890. Total non-tuition expenses, 1886-1890, amounted to $1,364.60.
