Diary of Marion Beers

by Beers, Marion (1939 – 1944)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Diary of Marion Beers documents the life of a young girl from Norwalk, Connecticut between 1939 and 1944. Beers was 11 when she began the diary and wrote about how she attended roller skating parties, rode her bike, and played with dolls. Although her entries over the years are sporadic, it is evident that Beers had grown up through her discussions about boys, ice cream parlor dates, and people going off to war. She also wrote about rationing and her teacher enlisting in the armed forces.
