1 DALE BARNUM 1909 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY A YOUNG RICHMOND INDIANA MAN WITH A FASCINATION FOR LOCAL CRIME AND POLITICS
RICHMOND INDIANA IN 1909 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a very interesting, original 1909 manuscript diary and journal handwritten by Dale Barnum of Richmond Indiana. Mr. Barnum is a young man using slang of the day. [He writes about concerts and plays he attends and mentions seeing, Mid Summer Nights Dream and says it was "punk".] He is also extremely interested in local crime, criminal arrests, politics and current events which local collectors and historians of the Richmond Indiana area will appreciate. Here are some snippets: "42 arrests last mon - drunks." "12 counties voted dry this week 42 dry now." "Prof Trueblood and Rev. T. P. Walter in trouble. See Mar. 31 - in Feb. only 7 arrests for drunk. "Ed Nesmith arrested." "Cool but fine - Mamma worries about me." "The Railsback meek shooting affair. Father & son killed." "J. B. Gordon assaulted at 9 o'clock by Byram Robbins." "Earl Brown killed himself at 4 pm today see June 8." "Cabinet meeting. Earl Browns body found today." "The great tariff fight is on." "Commenced working 59 hrs. per week." "Picnic at the glen Ray, Bess x Roy Maude x Will Frank x Ancil Eva B. x P. I and Vera B. A hot time. Pass the beans." "Harry Rife murdered Mrs. Griswald at Eaton." [Casual research finds the specifics of this horrid crime: Harry Rife shot, Mrs. Lida Griswald after she rejected his advances, in the library where she worked, in front of her son. He was sentenced to death and died in the electric chair in 1910. Dale also mentions this.] The 4" x 3", and the outer cover has some issues, the leather is dry and fragile and has torn in places, but it is still complete and the pages are not affected. The handwriting is quite legible, and there are 274 entries. Overall G.
