Diary of Myra Poole

by Poole, Myra (1905)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Diary of Myra Poole chronicles a year in the life of the young woman likely from New Bedford, Massachusetts. The author, however, spent most of 1905 in Herington, Kansas. While Poole was in Kansas, at least one tornado struck in May in nearby Marquette. In one of her entries, Poole revealed that her mother, father, and brother are dead; she spent much of the year living with a family with the surname Dayton. The fore-edges of the diary have the name "M.M. Lawton" inscribed in them and on the title page there is a note that states "read July 19, 1990 M.C." The transcribed diary is attached.
