1 ROBERT MORRIS SMITH 1938 - 1942 HANDWRITTEN 5 -YEAR MANUSCRIPT DIARY - SUPERB HOMEFRONT DIARY BY A DEPRESSION ERA YOUNG INDIANA BOY WHO TURNS INTO A WAR WISE YOUNG MAN
INDIANAPOLIS FAYETTEVILLE INDIANA IN 1938 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a superb World War II 1939 - 1942 handwritten manuscript 5-year 'homefront' diary authored by Robert Morris Smith. Only 10 years old at the start of the book Robert writes fully each and every day until he is past his 15th birthday in 1942. He is interested to no end in the threatening war, current events and of course his family and their friends. Truly remarkable given this young man's global scope from the heart of the mid-west. This is an extraordinary piece of Americana by a thoughtful, intelligent and curious young man who one literally sees grow up from Depression-era boyhood to young adulthood as the war impacts this young fellow. Robert never fails to mention major events, milestone dates, family issues both good and bad, visitors, contacts etc. Though unstated research suggests the Smith family was based in Indiana around the Indianapolis/Fayetteville area as most of the contacts and phone numbers in the memorandum section are in these areas. This diary besides being a valued record of Americana of the War and pre-War years it will also be a treasure for local historians and researchers as Robert studiously records names, events and milestones. VG.
