1 LESTER E. FIELDING 1916 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A UMASS SENIOR LIVING THE HIGH LIFE AND SOON TO BE FIGHTING THE KAISER AT THE BATTLE OF THE MARNE
MALDEN AMHERST MASSACHUSETTS MASS MA 1918 Soft Cover Good Manuscript 
On offer is an original 1916 manuscript diary handwritten by Lester E. Fielding from Malden, Massachusetts, a senior at Massachusetts Agricultural College [now UMass, Amherst]. Lester keeps a detailed record of every day until Oct. 2 when he declares that for efficiency a diary takes up too much time, and he quits. He writes about his visits with his dear Hazel, notes daily letters to her. Then Alice appears on the scene. Frat life. Lester zips around Massachusetts on "the cars" faster than today with an automobile. Lester takes Hazel to see Ethel Barrymore at the Hollis St. Theatre in Boston. In May there's lots of baseball and tennis, hardly time for classes. Graduation festivities spread over several days, ending June 21. On July 11 Lester goes to Fenway Park to see the Red Sox and Chicago in a double header. He's traveling all over Massachusetts and up into Vermont, giving demonstrations at churches and taking orders. Aug. 7 he attends a Boston Braves game-- they beat Cinci 2-0 and 6-0. Aug. 15 he sees Red Sox beat Washington 1-0 in 13 innings. Aug. 16 he watches Red Sox beat the White Sox 5-4 in 16 innings. Aug 23 he watches Sox beat Cleveland 7-3. Aug. 25 he and Hazel take boat up the coast to Bath, Maine, then up the Kennebec to South Bristol. Finally he sees Sox lose, to St. Louis, 1-2 on Aug. 31. [Note: According to MAC history, Fielding served Nov. 1917-April 1919 in Military Police in AEF in World War, fighting in Battle of the Marne, St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne.] Overall VG.
