On offer is a super archive of ten [10] original 1939 - 1951 manuscript diaries handwritten by Charles Schobinger, noted member of the Ski Hall of Fame in Estes Park Colorado, beginning at age 14 writing of his life as a student while attending the Harvard School for Boys in Chicago. The diaries continue through his years in college and the NROTC during World War II and the years following the war. His family was evidently well - off as he wrote of receiving a gift from the maid on his birthday. Mr. Schobinger had a real love of the outdoors, scouting and sports as a teen, and continued these activities as he grew older, in spite of a very active business and social life. He had countless dates and girlfriends, and scores of friends. He especially loved Estes Park in Colorado and often vacationed there - in 1939 as well as after graduation from the U of Colorado and his stint in the Navy. He wrote of climbing, skiing and hiking and took many slides of the park. Some of the entries in the author's earlier diaries are brief, consisting of a line or two. As he grew older, the entries became longer and more detailed. He had beautiful, neat handwriting, and the diaries are very legible, written in ink, and easily read. Also included with this diary lot are three blank diaries, one from 1948 and two from 1957 which were used for his collection of leaves from various species of plants. Included as well are some odds and ends of ephemera he saved in the diaries - lists and scores of games, a TWA brochure, a report card, a rather raunchy letter from someone named Chuck, and a few other odd pieces.
