On offer is an interesting, original 1932 - 1936 five year manuscript diary handwritten by Elmina Smith a young woman originally from Mauch Chunk Pennsylvania written while she attended Hood College in Frederick Maryland. Identified by the ephemera tucked in Elmina is an inconsistent writer, writing sporadically through the years but we note approximately 450 entries over the 5 years. 1933 and 1934 appears to be the most written years. Miss Smith [b. May 14th, 1913] with the help of a number of ephemeral pieces tucked in provides an intimate look at a young student's life at college: personal and printed invitations, programs, notes, ticket stubs, etc. The 4½ x 5¾ x 1½ inch book is overall G+.
