Allene Curry diaries (microfilm)

 Collection
Identifier: 1993_070-UA
Content Description The diaries were begun in 1938 by Curry at age 13. Nearly every notation begins with a word or two about the weather and concludes with a few words about activities of the day. There are reminders of her cherished walks in the woods and of her fishing trips: of her searches through the hills for ginseng; of pie suppers and sleigh rides; of outings with her sons when they were young, and later, with her nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. See also oral history interview (1993-048).
Dates: 1938-1992
