On offer is an interesting archive of 15 consecutive years [1921 - 1935] of manuscript diaries handwritten by S.C. Deskins [Stuart Columbus]. Mr. Deskins attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee and then later Elon College in North Carolina where it appears he earned a doctorate and eventually became the head of the History Department in 1947. [We list separately his early school notebooks studying Church history, Education, Philosophy etc.#0001951] Having served in World War I Stuart we note enigmatically that the earlier diaries are written in German then evolve to English and German and he never really stops using some simple German when for example he writes 'Zu Haus' but English entries otherwise. The diaries are not expressions of personal thoughts but follow his education experience at Vanderbilt and Elon very closely. Some of the books 5¾ x 2½ inch are in rougher shape with spines chewed but for the most part they are G+.
