75 Years Ago
January 9, 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 Saturday, January 9:
Still cold but not so windy. Outdoors & down to river. Got cars started & road open. I took V-8 and Leo took Chevy to town. With Pete quite awhile. Home with Dad. Listened to radio. Bed early.
Here is the long entry for Saturday, January 9:
Sun shining & getting nicer out. Reisberg & Shawd got road open. Dad walked in again. Leo drove Chevy & I drove V-8 in town in pm. Saw & sat with Pete. "Reason girls go with him is because he has so much money." Rode home with Dad. Did dishes, listened to Kate Smith on Sealtest Hour. About froze coming down the lane.
My comment: Scroll down to photo of Kate Smith and Sealtest Hour is mentioned, here on CBS wiki site.
Familes are Forever! ;-)
