75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 20, 1937
This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.
Since midway through 2010, a weekly update/comments blog entry began to appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Tuesday of the week, will continue, with links to these daily entries.
For 1937, the first entry available was for January 4. It was made in a multi-year diary format, so is short. Starting on January 5, there are two entries, one on the small format and a second is a full page entry. I suspect the longer entries were made later, when she got that book… there is no way to know, unless it shows up in the entries. This goes on for a couple of weeks. Let's see how it goes.
Here is the short entry for Wednesday, January 20:
Sent in typing for a change. Took down president's speech. Listened to Fred Allen & Lucky Strike Hour. "Pennies from Heaven." 1st.
Here is the long entry for Wednesday, January 20:
Sent in typing drills for a change. Forced myself to do it. Took down president's speech in Shorthand. At nite listened to Fred Allen & Lucky Strike Hours. "Pennies from Heaven" got 1st again.
My comments: "Pennies from Heaven" very popular song.
Fred Alleen (circa 1940s)
