S: Scout Finch
FC: Scout Finch's TKAM Scrapbook By: Sarah Gillingham English 10: Ms. Clites
1: Jean Louis Finch (Scout) First Day of School First Grade 6-7 Years Old | This is me, Jean Louise Finch, though most people call me Scout. I live in Maycomb County with my dad, brother, and our maid Calpurnia. I am in the first grade and so far it has not been my favorite year. My teacher Ms. Caroline doesn't like the fact that I know how to read so well and that I read with my dad every night. Maycomb is a sleepy, quiet town, but I enjoy living in it. I have fun running around in the summer playing with my friend Dill and my brother Jem.
2: Jeremy Atticus Finch (Jem) First Day of School Fifth Grade 10-11 Years Old | This is my brother Jem. He is four years older than me, but we get along pretty well. He is really into football and has been working really hard to make the team. Jem and I hang out a lot in the summer with our friend Dill. We act out different plays, take walks, and try to get our recluse of a neighbor, Boo Radley, to come out of his house. Jem is a great older brother, sometimes he gets on my nerves, but all-in-all he is a good kid.
3: Charles Baker Harris (Dill) Summer Day Visiting Maycomb from Meridian, Mississippi | This is my best friend, (and future husband), Dill Harris. Dill lives in Meridian, Mississippi but comes in every summer and visits his Aunt Rachel who is our neighbor. Ever since Jem first told Dill about Boo Radley, Dill has been fascinated and won't stop trying to get Boo to come out of his house. Summers are the best because we get to spend every day with Dill. I am always sad when he has to go back home, but I sure do enjoy the summers I get to spend with him.
4: This is my Dad Atticus Finch. He is a lawyer in Maycomb County and the best dad in the world. His favorite thing to do every evening after supper is read the paper and relax.
5: This is our maid Calpurnia, but we call her Cal. She is the best maid and makes the best food. We used to not get along very well, but have been doing better. She is like our mom since our real one is dead.
6: This our neighbor, Miss Maudie Atkinson. She's my favorite. She is always making cakes or in her garden tending to her azaleas. She knew Atticus when they were little and she is always real nice to Jem and me. | Miss Maudie
7: Miss Maudie's House Fire One year, tragedy struck our small town in Maycomb when Miss Maudie Atkinson's house caught on fire. What was even more surprising was the fact that she was not completely distraught. Her main concern was her azaleas and she quite liked the opportunity to have a new house built.
8: The Radley House This our neighbor, Boo Radley's, house. He NEVER comes out and nobody ever sees him during the day. Everyone says that he only comes out at night. He eats squirrels and the neighborhood cats and looks through people's windows at night. People say he is insane. Jem, Dill, and I have been trying for months to get him to come out of his house, but nothing works.
9: Atticus Outside the Maycomb County Jail Protecting Tom Robinson from the Mob | One night, Atticus left after supper, giving us hugs and kisses and saying he'd see us in the morning. Jem and I grew suspiscious and soon Jem, Dill, and me went after Atticus. We checked a couple of places before we finally found him. He was at the Maycomb County jail reading outside. As we stood there, three cars drove up, we later find out that they were there to kill Tom Robinson, but Atticus stood firm and no one ever got the chance.
10: We eventually ran up to Atticus to help him out, I think we did. I talked to Mr. Cunningham, who was in the mob, about his son and I think that I diffused the situation. If worst came to worst, Mr. Underwood had our back. He was hiding with a gun if we needed him.
11: This is Atticus during the trial of Tom Robinson. My dad defended Tom after he was accused of raping Miss Mayella Ewell. The Ewell's are bad news and no one in Maycomb likes them. I don't know what "rape" is, but I'm sure Tom didn't do it. | The Trial
12: The Defense | Atticus believed all along that Tom Robinson was innocent and would have continued fighting had Tom not been killed after trying to escape the prison.
13: This is Judge Taylor. He was the Judge who handled Tom Robinson's case in Maycomb County. Sometimes it seems as though Judge Taylor falls asleep during the trial, but he is always awake. He is stern, but fair and a really good judge. | Judge Taylor
14: This is Tom Robinson. This last year he was accused of raping Ms. Mayella Ewell. My dad Atticus is defending him in his trial. I've never met Tom myself, but people who have seem to think pretty highly of him. One Sunday morning, Jem and me went to Cal's church and Reverend Sykes wouldn't let anybody leave until they put money in the collection for Tom and his family. | Tom Robinson
15: The Ewells are not exactly the pride of Maycomb. In fact, for generations, they have been the disgrace of Maycomb County. In the Ewell family, Mr. Ewell doesn't work and his children only attend the first day of school. No one in Maycomb likes the Ewells and now with the trial, even less do. | The Ewells
16: Suspense filled the courtroom as men, women, and children gathered back to hear the jury's verdict. As members of the jury filed back into the courtroom, you could hear a pin drop. A man from the jury handed Judge Taylor the paper with the verdict on it. As the verdict was read, Jem, Dill, and I were not only deeply saddened, but furious. Tom Robinson was found guilty of rape. | The Verdict
17: The Colored Balcony During Tom Robinson's case we sat in the colored balcony with Reverend Sykes, the Reverend from Cal's church. Atticus did not know that we were even there until the very end. Reverend Sykes sat behind us the whole time and even saved our seats while we went home to eat supper.
18: This was the night of Halloween and of the play at the Maycomb High School. Miss Merriweather put it on. I was a ham in it. The night started off fun and light-hearted. There were booths and activities everywhere for kids to do. The night took a scary turn, however, when our way home, Bob Ewell followed us and tried to kill Jem and me. We escaped with only minor injuries. Heck Tate says my costume daved my life. That was how Jem broke his arm. Thanks to Boo Radley, we got home safe. I think he is really the one that saved our lives.
19: This is our neighbor Boo Radley. I only ever met met him once. He rescued Jem and Me from Bob Ewell. I feel bad about all the rumors that have been said about him. The truth is he is a sweet man and he means well. I walked him home the evening that he came to Jem and mines rescue. Jem never got to meet him, but I'm glad I did. He's a good person.
20: If there is one thing that I have learned over the years, it is that family is the most important thing. We help each other through everything and are always there for each other.
21: THE END
