On offer is an original manuscript diary handwritten by the young, incredibly popular Miss Helen Stearns. Helen details her life and times in a premium five years style diary book that covers the early part of the 20th century from 1905 through 1909. We watch Helen go from school in Weston, Connecticut to the prestigious Bryn Mawr in Pennsylvania. Obviously a product of a family of some means Helen has an active social life which involved attending teas, house parties, dances, bridge and 21 and visiting New York City. She is a very dedicated diarist with entries for every single day for 5 years. She mentions many hundreds of friends, family, contacts, visits and she is a Phi Mou Pawa. After graduating in 1909 she moved to NYC and later embarked on a long tour of Europe. A few pieces of ephemera are laid-in including some foliage. Overall G+.
