1 WILLIAM JAMES HART 1933 - 1934 ORIGINAL DEPRESSION ERA MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A FORTHRIGHT, HARDWORKING PENNSYLVANIA TEENAGE BOY
GLYDE PENNSYLVANIA PA 1933 Poor Manuscript 
On offer is the original Depression Era manuscript diary handwritten by William James Hart, a 16 - 17 year old we estimate, boy who is one of a family of nine, eight who are still at home. Mr. Hart does a super job as he logs entries for almost every day of 1933 and 1934 missing only a handful. Between going to school and his studies William is extremely busy with his family and extensive circle of friends. He makes note and mentions: going to the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Luther League Rally, Mons City [Monesson?], playing Croquinole, digging out skunks and possums, picking up girls and going to a beer joint, a snowless January, buying a rabbit dog, skinning sheep and cows, shooting pool, lectures on spiritual matters, attending J.O.U.A.M. meetings [Junior Order United American Mechanics], Elsie Rasel funeral, picking 33 quarts of cherries with a friend and selling them and making $400 in town ++++. William is a great diarist rarely failing to mention his visitors and contacts by name. Just to name a few: Karl Kinder, Clark Mitchell, Karl Mitchell, Jimmy Bayne, Gerty Hewitt, Mary Moffit, Noreen Fowler, Dock Mawl, Bill More, Steve Berry, Dr. Dodd, Betty Elliott, Wylie Shipe, Clarence Fowler, Roy Knestrick and he travels to nearby Glyde, Josephine, Waynesberg and surrounding area of Washington County Pennsylvania. Historians and collectors of the Depression Era will note that even a youngster like William is interest when he notes at the end of February in the 'Memo' section that Roosevelt is taking his seat in Washington DC and that the banks were closed on his orders. The five year diary is in terrible shape being broken and in pieces but complete and legible. Overall Poor.
