Diaries of Mary Langan

by Langan, Mary (1943 – 1945)

3 folders (0.3 linear feet)

The three diaries of Mary Langan, a Catholic housewife who lived in Springfield, Massachusetts, are dated 1943, 1944, and 1945. While many of Langan's entries commented on the weather and her health, she also wrote about world affairs such as bans on pleasure driving, ration coupons, President Roosevelt's death, V-J Day, and other events related to the Second World War. It is also worth noting that in 1943 she wrote her name as "Mrs. W.F. Langan" and in 1945 wrote it as "Mary A. Langan."
