On offer are the handwritten diaries, ledgers and misc. paper items from the estate of Lucian Willis Bugbee, Jr. The paper covers the years from 1911-1921 and it starts out as Lucian's life as a student at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA and ends with starting a job at One-Piece Bifocal Lens Company in Indianapolis, IN. [An internet search will provide details as to Lucian's future successes in the optical lens industry). Mr. Bugbee also attended college at MIT in MA and Oxford College in England and writes about those years. Our diarist details the complete college experience; football games, soccer games, running track, going to church, shooting peas at windows on Halloween. He is also free with his opinions; of Wilson winning the presidential election, attending a Pablo Casals concert (program included from 1917), troubles with women and their courtships. The diaries end with Bugbee obtaining a job at One Piece Biforcal Lens Company and he writes about his work days and technical work he is trying to accomplish with eye glass lenses. Also included are ledgers of expenses from his years at school with room and board costing him $2.25 per week, 60 cent suppers, 25 cent lunches, 56 cents to have his laundry done. There are 12 diaries and ledgers all together, along with Casals program and one diary includes a Andover-Exeter football ticket from 1916. Overall in good shape with some books much lesser and some much better.
