On offer is an interesting small diary/memo book written between Oct 1st, 1900 and Feb 19th by Flora G Schilling, an Indiana student. The memo book measures about 5 1/2 in by 2 3/4 in and was a promotional item put out by "Bert A. Drees, Pharmacist" of Lafayette, IN. With 30 pages, it is in very good condition and 100% complete. The handwriting is quite legible. The heading of the first page note Class of 01 which would seem to confirm her status as a student. References on page 3 indicate that Schilling and her friends attended the annual Fall Carnival. The entries are sporadic in nature and some are undated. A notable entry in this little journal was: "Roosevelt came to the city... watching the Rough rider on Main Street..." [Oct 10, 1900. This is a reference to the 1900 US Presidential election campaign where Theodore Roosevelt's was running as Vice-Presidential candidate. Most entries are of a chatty nature: "Frank and I went to dancing school Had a royal time" [p10]. "Preparing for examination in Astronomy..." [Dec 12, 1900] "E. S. & I bidding V goodbye. Went downtown to [ ] to sample candy" [pp15-16]. "Sister M [ ] was in the room and had to study oh so hard I went to dance Monday night and had a swell time." [Jan 7, 1901]. An interesting little notebook with an important historical reference - Wm. McKinley was in fact elected President with Roosevelt as his Vice President and less than 1 year later, Roosevelt would be President following McKinley's assassination.
