by McGrath, Becky Anne (1957 – 1959)

3 folders (0.3 linear feet)

The three diaries of Becky Anne McGrath were written between 1957 and 1959 and document the daily activities and social life of the Naval Academy student from Virginia. The 1957 and 1959 diaries are U.S. Naval Academy-issued "Trident Calendars" and consist of brief entries for each day, as well as annotated calendars. The 1958 diary is a "Year Book" for appointments, reminders, and memoranda, but consists of page-long daily entries from January to August. While many of McGrath's entries focused on her family and dating life, she also began to teach at Longwood College (now Longwood University) in Farmville, Virginia in 1959. McGrath commented on some world affairs, notably the 1958 Lebanon Crisis.
