1 Miss Harriet Buck [Mrs. Dr. Archie McLaren] 1883 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY/JOURNAL/SCRAPBOOK OF AN INTELLIGENT, ARTICULATE DIARIST WHO TRAVELS THE COUNTRY AND CATALOGUES EVERY ENTERTAINMENT OF OPERA, THEATER AND DANCE ALL THE WHILE ROMANCING DR. MCLAREN
Lockport New York, St. Paul Minnesota 1883 Good Manuscript 
On offer is one the most remarkable journals/diaries/scrapbooks we have encountered. Harriet E. Buck writes to her diary as if it is a living friend. Beginning December 23rd 1883, Miss Buck suggests that the diary might take umbrage beginning at the end of the year. She apologizes for leaving the notebook style journal in her trunk as she traveled about the country and travel she does! Miss Buck's diary is more than half used and chock full of cuttings and clippings of dozens of stage plays, concerts and operas etc. Miss Buck's name occasionally is listed on the playbills as an actress or singer. She is from Lockport New York but travels everywhere in the USA. Besides her near unquenchable thirst for theater and music her other focus is on Dr Archie McLaren from St. Paul. Press clippings from Buffalo to St. Paul: Buffalo Sunday Courier "It is said a St. Paul, Minn, gentleman will shortly make a well-known young lady residing on High Street his bride" and St. Paul Globe "The engagement is announced of Dr. Archie McLaren to Miss Buck of New York, who visited friends in St. Paul the past winter." Research suggests that her father was Alva Buck, a prosperous hotel owner in Lockport. Miss Buck is also a ravenous reader, perhaps assisted by travel, Miss Buck displays a the back of this page after page of books she has read over the years up to about 1901. A super read from this joyful perky woman of her personal thoughts, travels and courtship and marriage to Dr. McLaren make for a very special look at a unique woman of the latter part of the 19th century. This is a treasure trove of information on the theater, music and opera of the era is also a rarity especially given that she has gone across the country and all the while sees every show she can. Truly a great historical archive of the entertainments available in America at the time. The book is in fair shape as the covers are hanging by a thread and a few loose pages but all appear accounted for. Overall G.
