On offer is the original handwritten manuscript diary of an unidentified young girl of 18 who lived near Warren Pennsylvania and went to Grove City College in 1904. The diary runs from January 1st through to November 21st and is written in a 4 x 6 memorandum style book. She is a faithful and does a super job recording the details of her daily activities. She spent nearly 3 months of the year in possibly a Music program at Grove City. Lots of names from the College are mentioned, friends, instructors, activities etc. The bulk of the diary has the young lady at home in Glade Pennsylvania just east of Warren Pa. Our diarist had an active social life with friends, boyfriend Howard, and many activities including the Carnival, boating, ball games, sleighs etc. The young girl also mentions mundane activities, house work, weather. Again, many names and places from the Warren area are mentioned. Here are some snippets: March 2 "We took a walk out to Slabtown coming back we invited the boys to come in, we played five games of pedro. Milo and I against Lillian and Truman. Lillian fixed night lock on door down stairs. About 9:45 Dr. Ketler called we knew it was him so we hid the pedro deck in the upper bureau draw and hauled out flinch cards just as Doctor tried our door. Lillian let him in, he of course sent the boys home, then game us a certain lecture which we didnt take. He told us we could meet the faculty......" The diary itself is in poor to fair condition. The leather cover is partially torn away and with most of the spine strap gone but the text block is still tight to the spine. The diary is full. Overall G.
