Diaries, 1890-1934.

This collection of diaries covers the period 1890 to 1934, with the years 1891, 1892, and 1896 missing. Entries are brief and infrequent, and include Hale's activities at AAS, the Bohemian Club, and other Worcester organizations, and his art work--bookplates, coats-of-arms, dinner cards, etc. Included with the diaries is a typescript summary of them, copied by C. S. Brigham in 1938. Brigham often dismisses a year with "no entries of interest."
