1 DR. ZACHARIAH WILLIS KEMP 1889 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL OF A SUPER DIARIST AT THE START OF HIS FASCINATING LIFE, FAMILY AND CAREERS
FAIRHAVEN, MASSACHUSETTS 1889 Good Manuscript 
On offer is an interesting, original 1889 manuscript diary handwritten by the amazing Dr. Zacharia Willis Kemp a sensational diarist whose writings, 14 diaries from the Depression era through to World War II, had been previously available for sale; this 1889 diary being a recent find. Kemp was born on April 12, 1855 in Otisfield, ME. His parents are recorded as Charles E. Kemp and Sybil J. Wardwell Kemp with the origin of the family line dating back to 1380 in England. He married Miss Mary L. Boynton on December 24, 1885 and she was the daughter of Gardner B. and Sarah G. Boynton, of Norway, Me. (Mary's father was a prosperous tanner of that town and a Civil War veteran). The Kemp's had eight children with the oldest being Ida, born on 1886, and she is noted in this biography, including other particulars about the family's life. Dr. Kemp was elected principal of a High School in Fairhaven, Mass. He was a Republican in politics, belonged to the Masonic Order, in which he was a past master, and to the Odd Fellows, in which he was a past grand; he was also a member of the New Hampshire Peace Society. Both Dr. Kemp and his wife were people of culture and refinement who took an interest in the moral and material development of their community and it is reflected in the writings of his diary. Here is a snippet: Warm Friday, May 10 1889 Sultry May went to Launton today at 1'oclock with the New Bedford Coral Asso. to give a concert with the Volunteer Assoc. Ida attended little Dorathy Sliddard's birth-day party this P.M. It is very sultry and we have had the first shower of the season tonight not a very severe one." 5 x 8 inches, overall G+.
