1 W.H. HERSKOVITS 1923 ORIGINAL 34 DAY MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY AN OPINIONATED, JUDGEMENTAL, ARGUMENTATIVE YET POPULAR JEWISH FRATERNITY MAN
SYRACUSE NEW YORK NY ONODOGA UTICA 1923 Poor Manuscript 
On offer is an original and very interesting 1923 manuscript diary handwritten by, we believe, W.H. Herskovits [there is an ex libris pastedown for Arthur Herskovits but hand-stamped W.H. Herskovits in a number of places including the front cover]. The diary is in a 7 x 4 inch page a day book written fully but only for one month and a bit starting January 1st. Short as it is the diary, page for page, offers a fascinating character study of his personality in just 34 days. The reader learns that Mr. Herskovits appears to live in a fraternity house likely a Jewish Fraternity in Syracuse. He studies English has criminology classes, but also Bible classes. Opinionated, judgemental, and a regular man about town who goes out constantly with his chums, travels to other towns like Utica, Onodoga and more. He dates quite often and even though it is the Prohibition Era he mentions 'imbibing slightly' quite a bit. Coming home at all hours of the night is not unusual at all. Here are some snippets: 'Spent New Years Eve with Gabby at Burlesque. Miserable show and met the common rabble. Imbibed slightly.' 'Had breakfast and on the way downtown [Utica] introduced to Mildred Rhyne a friend of "Vic's". Impressed deeply by her personality and general makeup.' 'Milton came in and had a tussle with him, he threatened to move. Can't stand his trying to pull the wool over my eyes concerning everything he does. He lies miserably and continually.' The book is in awful shape. The hinge is cracked, the first page loose and water damaged throughout but amazingly still easily read.
