This is one of the most fascinating diaries. Charles Snyder is a young, intelligent, perhaps brilliant and certainly obsessive man from Bryan and Bowling Green, Ohio. The diary proper, once a standard "Everyday" brand diary about an inch thick is expanded to over 4.5 inches being over-stuffed with ephemera. Charles was very studious in saving and storing his world in paper form - newspaper clippings, letters, receipts, documents, postcards, photos etc., etc. fill this book on top of the pages and pages of his writings. Charles was at the beginning of 1938 still a senior in high school and by the fall he was a freshman at college. Further information in a letter by the Principal of the college to Air Force recruitment in 1941 recommending him for air force duty is further evidence he is in his late teens at the time. This is one of the most astounding diaries we have ever seen for the breadth of information Mr. Snyder delivers in detailing his life at school, among friends and his views of the world arounds fleshed out all the more with the many hundreds of inclusions from his friends, family, teachers and his of course his own. Hard to place a condition to this book as it has morphed into something differents. It is however all legible and intact and overall we suggest Good+. Devotees of the diary art and Ohio historians and genealogists will have many, many hours of treasure hunting in this book.
