1 HELEN GERRISH HUGHES 1917 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT WORLD WAR I HOMEFRONT AND COLLEGE DIARY OF A YOUNG SAN FRANCISCO WOMAN ATTENDING UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY
BERKELEY WILTON SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY CALIFORNIA CA 1917 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a charming, original manuscript diary handwritten by Helen Gerrish Hughes, who lived in San Francisco and attended University of California, Berkeley. Historians and collectors of the era and particularly those in the San Francisco area, Helen Hughes details her life and travels mentioning events and observations of many familiar landmarks: a banquet at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley; New Year's Eve on Market Street; the Ferry Building etc. She mentions the "dreadful" traffic on Market Street in San Francisco. Her father is a colonel in the army and many of her acquaintances are in the service, so there are references to military installations in the area, and fears of friends being sent to France to serve. Folded inside the book, maybe as a bookmark, was the flyer advertising the Watchtower Society. For the most part the diary deals with 1917 - 1918 at the University with two entries at the end; one in 1923 we read that Helen is now teaching school in the San Joaquin Valley near Winton and then the last in 1924 merely up to say that she is still teaching quite happy etc. "What a contrast to those awful war days!" she exults in the 1923 entry. The book proper, a 'Little Colonel's Good Times Diary', is written by Anne Fellows Johnston and published in 1909, this book includes a 10 page forward by the author, a Birthday Record, and a diary of 113 completed pages (with entries beginning on December 23, 1917). She notes the book is Volume II but the first volume is absent and unaccounted for. There is cover wear, including some fading, two ink spots on the front endpapers, overall tanning, one creased page, edge wear and minor soil, and separation of pages from the spine but overall G+.
