On offer is an interesting, pair [2] of original manuscript diaries handwritten by a young Detroit Michigan girl named Ruth Clark. [A casual reading finds she was related to Abraham Clark who signed the Declaration of Independence.] In the first diary, a five year book covering 1935 to 1939 Ruth, 13 years old at the start, does a super job of detailing her life and times as a high school student and then in the second book dated September 1939 to September 1940 she attends the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She writes of the politics, university affairs, dates, getting "the curse", Coke dates, seeing all the movies of the time like Gone With The Wind, the cost of things back then which is fascinating in it's own right. She attended a speech by Eleanor Roosevelt another by the Arch Duke, talks Michigan football when season tickets were $3.00! She listens to the Victrola, goes home to Detroit on weekends by train, just a great peek into her life during the glorious 1930's. She has some code language she uses which no doubt has something to do with her dates. Adding further depth are a number of ephemeral items like ticket stubs, notes, etc. Overall VG.
