1 Herbert E. KEMP 1920 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A CHARMING EXUBERANT ALL-AMERICAN WORKING AT THE BOSTON SHIPYARDS AND SOON TO BE MARRIED TO HIS LOVE BACK HOME
Boston, MASS. Gloversville, NY 1920 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is the handwritten manuscript diary for 1920 of Herbert E Kemp who is a charming, intelligent, expressive young man, 27 years old on November 19th, who worked at the Boston Shipyards doing mechanical/engineering jobs on some important ships such as the Leviathan, the Delaware etc. and the former Gloversville New York man was responsible enough that he was the deputy boss. Readers of this diary will be charmed by his deep romantic love for his adored Kay [Katherine Horsberg], back home, whom he eventually marries. Readers will also be delighted with Herbert's style. He has a lot of personality and lets it hang out in his writings. Clearly written in an engineer's precise printing he makes interesting notes on the weather, his work and amusement activities, his friends, and He was an avid bowler and never fails to record his league scores. He works hard, plays hard and is a robust friend. He mentions being made vice president of his local union, smoked a cigar with the chief engineer of the Geo. Washington, has the "flibberty gibbets" over the upcoming trip to Kay, working on the O-boats, getting promotions, playing billiards, movies, shows, and the regular thoughts and plans for his future with Kay. The back of the book has a record of his expenses and phone calls. He is a very precise All-American type young man who exemplifies and provides a super glimpse of post-World War I America.
