1 JOSEPHINE D. NYCZ 1938 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A HARD WORKING POLISH AMERICAN GIRL THAT SURVIVES THE 'LONG ISLAND EXPRESS' HURRICANE
HADLEY MASSACHUSETTS MASS MA 1938 Soft Cover Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is an interesting, historical, manuscript diary of a young Polish-American woman named Josephine D. Nycz who lived with her parents in Hadley Massachusetts. In many ways a very typical, hard-working girl-next-door and new generation American experience as she details her life: often going dancing with her group of friends; celebrated her 26th birthday at White Eagle Dance; she notes that she bought some liquor that night; lots of hard work, he started work at the Seville Restaurant, evenings at Paul's Cafe, Whately Inn, Bay State Hotel, Cozy Corner, Grochmal's, etc. In spring, she's setting out onion plants all day, and in summer, weeding onions and then clipping them. And she digs potatoes. On June 22, after Smith College closes for summer, no more work at restaurant. On July 20th she had Warsaw, Poland on the radio. In fall, she's screening onions, then back to work at Seville. Of particular interest to local historians and collectors are her entries that start on Sept. 18, and continues until Sept. 21 when the disastrous "Long Island Express" Hurricane of 1938 blows through. On Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. the dike holding back the Connecticut River breaks. Flooding everywhere, crops washed out, barns blown down, no phone or lights. Ten people slept at home. [According to records, the 3000 people of Hadley were evacuated to Amherst as result of flooding.] Standard small diary with color maps, calendar. Overall VG.
