On offer is an interesting 1933 - 1937 Depression era manuscript diary handwritten by college student [then a teacher starting her career Jan. 4th 1937 at Jefferson County High then to Mt. Olive] Miss Mildred McCollum [b. Feb 17th 1911 thusly turning 22 at the start of the diary. Mildred is not the most faithful diarist keeping up entries for about 50-60% of the 5 year diary but she still does a super job revealing her very social life in pre World War II Alabama. She writes of her friendships with boys, dating boys, writing boys and otherwise sharing time with friends, work, family and her church makes for a lovely record of Alabama Americana from an era long gone. She rarely fails to mention names including: E.W. Morris, Clara Patton, Dr. Collier, Frances Beaty, Mildred Aikens and many, many more. Overall the book is VG.
