1 WARD L. BERTHOLF 1921 THROUGH 1939 ARCHIVE OF TWELVE [12] MANUSCRIPT DIARIES DETAILING THIS YOUNG UPSTATE NEW YORK ALL AMERICAN BOY AND MUSICIAN THROUGH THE ROARING TWENTIES THROUGH THE DEPRESSION TO THE VERY CUSP OF WORLD WAR II
BINGHAMPTON NEW YORK NY 1921 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is a super archive of twelve [12] manuscript diaries handwritten by the young, personable and talented Ward L Bertholf [1904-1989] of Binghamton New York. The 12 diaries cover 11 years being dated 1921, 1922, 1923 (he had 2 for this year - a very small book he then duplicated into a larger book), 1927 then 1933 - 1939 providing a detailed look at the life of this young man over the Roaring Twenties and the Flapper Era through the Depression to pre-World War II America. Ward is in many ways the typical All-American boy-next-door who with humor describes his daily life, friends, dates, family and work. He works as best he can by day and then plays with his band in the evenings. Collectors and historians of the Binghampton area will delight in his writings and the ephemera littered throughout the books with bus and show tickets, schedules etc. Students of social studies will also find Ward's evolution from a young playful teenager into married man with all the patent responsibilties rather enlightening. Overall VG.
