James Scripps Booth (JSB), eldest son of George Gough and Ellen Scripps Booth, attended St. Luke’s School in Wayne, Pennsylvania. According to the Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society, St. Luke’s School operated from 1863-1927. It was in its Wayne, Pennsylvania location from 1902 until its closing. In 1907, JSB was a student there and drew pictures for the school’s annual.
Cranbrook Archives retains the original drawings of the pages James contributed, as well as copies of pages from the annual which feature JSB, his work, or his friends.

To use a word introduced to me by Thistle, a portion of this is tommyrot. James was the eldest of the Booth offspring. Of the boys, the succession ran James, Warren, and Henry.
Oops! We made a Freudian slip – of course we know that James was the eldest son. Thanks for letting us know! We have made the correction.
