On offer is and interesting and intriguing 1938 travel diary handwritten by Doris L. Berglund of Waukegan Illinois who left from Union Station likely in Chicago to New York by train and then to Holland via steamship. While the book is about 20 pages one cannot help but be intrigued: Doris is very headstrong taking charge to change her dining arrangements when it suited her: she was to sit with a Mr. B and she changed them to sit at another table with Bill Wright of Denver Colorado, headed to Paris to study - she notes that he "has girls on both sides of the ocean but doesn't seem to love any…" Most interesting given the pre war atmosphere is hen she notes a doctor "Herbert Deines" on board, a "graduate of Heidelberg, a Storm Troop leader, army officer, leader of Hitler Youth etc…" The last entry notes that the ship is headed south for the Azores. At this point Doris switches to shorthand making for a very enigmatic situation and a desire to translate the notes which we leave to the future owners. At the back of diary are detailed names and addresses of people. The 6½" x 4" book is overall G.
