1 MRS. HELEN BACKER 1937 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT SOUTH AMERICAN OCEAN VOYAGE TRAVEL DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY AN INTELLIGENT, OBSERVANT PENNSYLVANIA WOMAN
ASEA BOLIVIA CUBA PERU PANAMA 1937 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a detailed, original 1937 travel diary handwritten by a Washington Pennsylvania woman named Helen Backer who along with her husband Harold [and we believe, as research suggests, her sister Mrs. Stella D. Wallace - a number of ephemeral pieces tucked in are in her name] travel extensively from New York to Cuba, Panama, Bolivia, Peru, Chile and back to America. Writing in a large 9 x 7 inch loose leaf 3-ring binder Helen does a great job detailing the highs and lows of her trip. Adding charm and depth to the entire journal are quite a few ephemeral pieces including stationery, tickets and notes she seems to have taken while off ship or out of the hotel. In total there are about 43 pages of entries and up to a dozen other notes. She goes the traditional route much of the time going to Sloppy Joe's in Cuba (Hemingway's favorite haunt) and not being very impressed with it; meeting Cecile B Demille's brother who was also traveling on the same ship much, much more. We understand from later materials Helen became a military nurse in World War II. There is some brittleness to the pages, some age toning but overall G.
