1 HIRAM MAYNARD 1914 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL DIARY OF IOWA HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR AND FRESHMAN AT COLLEGE - ALL AMERICAN BOY
Waterloo Iowa IA Marietta Ohio 1914 Original Cloth Very Fine Manuscript 
Written by Hiram Maynard of Waterloo, Iowa, this delightful and well-written diary spans the last half of his senior year in high school and the early portion of his freshman year at what I believe is Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio. Provided are entries for most days of the year 1914. Browsing through, it becomes evident that the young man came from a fairly affluent family and associated with friends who were also well off. (Noted is that his father was employed by the Ciitizens Gas and Electric Company of Waterloo.) There are frequent references to automobiles (a most expensive luxury in 1909!), hotel stays, out-of-town visits, attendance theatre/movie/vaudeville performances, and one entry makes reference to his own motorcycle. It also sems that his parents were fairly liberal in his upbringing, given his late hours, though it's clear that the young man led a wholesome life, popular with his many friends, involved in school and church activities. Note his reference to hearing a Garfield speech: a relation to a relative of the then-late President Garfield? Presumably it was a campaign speech for Republican congressional candidates in the then-forthcoming November election. Note also the fine penmanship. The red-leather (?)-bound diary measures 3 1/4" x 5 3/4" and is in remarkably fine condition.
