Maud includes newspaper clippings discussing graduation, classmate accomplishments, and marriages. Maud attended the North Carolina Women's College after her departure from Kings Mountain. The final pages are almost exclusively snapshots from a variety of life events ranging from candids with friends to vacations. From context, it appears she went on to become a teacher.
