2 MAGGIE REES [nee MORGAN] et al 1920 ORIGINAL ROARING 20s MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY AN INTELLIGENT, EDUCATED NURSE AND CHEMISTRY LOVER WHO SADLY ALL TOO EASILY EXHIBITS THE RACISM OF THE DAY
LOWELL, MASSACHUSETTS 1920 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is a very interesting, original 1920 manuscript diary handwritten by "Maggie" who works as a nurse at a hospital in Lowell, Massachusetts for a kindly "chief" who gives her salary raise to $125.00 per month, visiting her family often in another city and shopping in Boston. Maggie is undoubtedly bright, writes well but using a 5 year diary for the one year we note an entry all too typical of the times even for a nice girl and nurse: she writes how she went to work as usual: 'a succession of patients streamed into the emerg. Room 1) a girl with a huge cavity in tooth; 2) man with an elbow almost dislocated; 3) man with a finger 'sore likadahell'; 4) Dave with a headache. 5) Negro wanting foot dressed. Balked at the last one.' Her birthday is May 21st and in 1920 she is 26 years old and weighs 101 ½ lbs on May 8, 1920. She read a lot and had diabetes. She may have been studying to be a chemist as she belongs to the Chem Society and reads on the subject, also attends many socials, goes to friends and family for dinners, and sits by the fire with friends. She notes on January 28th 1920, "I tried to digest an article in the Jan. 3rd Scientific American on the Einstein Theory of Relativity." She is intelligent, diligent, happy, spends a lot of time with family i.e. playing piano duets with her mother on March 8th 1920, is smitten by a "Robbie" fellow who is studying elsewhere but they talk on the telephone and write letters while apart. She notes a Valentines dinner party with flowery center-pieces and exchange presents on that day with family. The 4 ½" x 6" book has about 250 pages of entries and is overall G+.
