by Fisher, G.S. (circa 1942)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Diary of G.S. Fisher documents the journey of a woman from Braintree, Massachusetts to Camp Gordon in Augusta, Georgia, where her son, Richard, was stationed. Fisher, who traveled sometime around 1942, wrote extensive comments on southern lifestyle, African Americans, landscapes, and the general surroundings throughout her entire journey. There are photographs pasted throughout the diary, some presumably taken by Fisher and others collected as souvenirs. Fisher traveled by train through the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and eventually visited New York to meet someone named Russell.
