75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 26, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 26, 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 Tuesday, January 26:

Copied Emmert's music. Mom better. Did dishes. Pete & I went to "Rose Bowl." Clara Loeffler got $100. Went right home.

Here is the long entry for Tuesday, January 26:

Not so cold. Copied off Emmert's music nearly all day long. Home at Noon. Mom better. Did up work. At nite took a bath while folks ate. Did dishes. Pete came at 8:00 & we went to "Rose Bowl." Clara Loeffler got $100. Still $140 left. Went right home.

My comments: Buster Crabbe was still early in his career in the movies, he had the third position in "Rose Bowl." His career ran from 1930 to 1982, including the popular serial Flash Gordon.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
