Diary of Marthe Johnson

by Johnson, Marthe (1927)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Diary of Marthe Johnson was written in 1927 by a 15 year old woman from San Louis Obispo County, California. Johnson frequently read and saw films, which likely inspired her emotive writing and dreams of "trips abroad to the mysterious and romantic lands of Europe and Africa and Asia." Johnson wrote nearly every day about school, family road trips around America, and what she had read. She was also a member of the Girls Athletic Association (G.A.A.). Also included with the diary is a 13 page note that Johnson wrote to close the year 1927, which provides insight into the author's intentions and emotions.
