On offer is an original manuscript diary handwritten by future author, historian and noted scholar of the eastern seaboard and American coastal waters, Elizabeth Francenia McKoy. One of a prominent, historical family she was the niece of noted portrait painter of Captain Kidd, Henry Bacon. Of particular interest to historians and biographers of the author and the era, this diary details her time in 1906-1907 while she's attending Converse College in Spartanburg South Carolina and in many ways is a unique relic of this school in the new century. Dated November 13th 1906 through June 16th 1907 the diary has 122 handwritten pages and is also full of ephemera; letters, photos, invitations, etc. adding great depth to her Converse College experiences. The 8" x 10" is in rough shape though the text block is not too bad and her writing is overall quite good. Fair. BIO NOTES: Birth: Dec. 14, 1887 - Death: Oct. 17, 1984. Burial: Oakdale Cemetery Wilmington New Hanover County, North Carolina, USA
