On offer is an original, very charming archive of three [3] small diaries handwritten by Marion Butterwick, an artist and designer from Kewanee Illinois. The diaries are dated through the Roaring 20s through to the start of the depression years of 1926 through 1930. Marion Butterwick [b. May 5th 1908 - d. January 26th 2004] was well known for her sculptures, abstract paintings and sketches. Small books, 2 ½" x 3 ½", they cover four years of college with time spent in St Louis and Boston. The first book starts September 13, 1926 as she leaves Kewanee Illinois on train and arrives at college in St Louis detailing college life: football game at Taylor Field; rallies and bonfires; gym; homework; study hall; Sunday school; shopping; coming back home from college then returning after semester break; swimming; basketball practice and much more. The second starts with September 11, 1927 and another trip from Kewanee to St Louis to college. This diary indicates Marion was much more involved with clubs, groups, outings and a bit more socializing; plenty notes on classes and daily college life in 1927. Diary 2 is has about half used. The third book she titles: "Year in Boston" 1929-1930. Marion was attending college in Boston as the notes talk again about classes, assignments, social events of all kinds, tea, opinions and impressions on Boston, church notes, socializing, travels and sights around Boston. Second half of this diary is labeled as the 2nd year at school in Boston. Diary 3 is like the first book almost full. Researchers and historians will be delighted with this treasure trove on the personal intimate life and development of a known artist in her formative college days. The diaries come with a small desk top holder. All are covered in a fabric which has started to fray in a few places. Overall G+.
