Diaries Collection. 11851-1943.


Diaries Collection. 11851-1943.

Diaries dating from the 19th century provide information on mid-century farm life, social activities, local travel and education at a one room school. Two “thoughts diaries” of the same period give one man's views on Christianity, human nature and slavery. Travel journals from the later part of the century describe trips through European countries; these also contain information on transportation and lodging. Those dating from the 20th century reveal much about the life of a Connecticut female artist and her thoughts and feelings concerning World War II. Also included is the 1943 diary of a University of Connecticut coed and the 1902 diary of a Hartford store employee.
