75 Years Ago
January 4, 1937
This entry starts a daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. Eileen had recently turned 18 years old, just before Christmas. [Eileen, who is the mother of the author of this blog, died in 1999, at age 80]
Background: For 1936, Eileen's diary entries have been online since 2005. 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.
The 1936 entries ended with January 1, 1937. There are not entries for January 2 and 3 available. For 1937, the first entry available is 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 entry for Monday, January 4:
Wore ski pants to work. Studied shorthand. Paul T. got my typewriter. Got 7 curls (Zoto)(sic) at 5:00. I brought car home alone. Heard Fibber MaGee & Molly & "Men in White". Embroidered.
Fibber McGee & Molly debuted on the radio on 16 Apr 1936.
