On offer are four [4] handwritten manuscript diaries [and one journal] starting December 6th 1910 to Aug 29 1913 detailing the intimate, emotional thoughts and feelings of a young Arizona woman on her journey to become a woman during the early years of the 20th century prior to and during and in a later book after the Great War. Historians and collectors of Arizona history will be delighted as Jennaveve proves to be an utterly charming young woman who gives a superb sense of the Arizona Territory as it enters the Union in 1913 as the 48th State and in the same year women's suffrage also comes to Arizona. However Miss John does not seemed charmed by her new life after high school enough to lament she wishes she had never left high school. Besides her heartfelt thoughts and observations one finds dotting the journals are numerous hand drawn pictures, newspaper clippings, dried flowers and other illustrations. She talks about school, boys, her friends and loved ones. Also included is a book also by the same young girl, on the front it reads P.T.A. and records some meetings, some study notes and a series of clippings featuring the Presidents of the United States including Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James Knox Polk, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses Simpson Grant, Rutherford Birchard Hayes, James Abram Garfield, Chester Alan Arthur, Grover Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Herbert Clark Hoover.
