75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 14, 1937


 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 14, 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, for most days, there is both a short entry in a multi-year diary and a longer entry in a an appointment book like her diaries of past years. There is some indication the short entries were made later based on the longer entries. We still do not really know for sure.

WELL, now we know. March 8 was the last entry in the 'longer' appointment book, like in prior years. March 9 begins only entries in the shorter, 5 year diary format. How long will this last???




Here is the entry for Sunday, March 14:

Up at 9:15. To S.S. with Valeria & church, too. She & Dot T. & I went down to Ger's & then to Lil's. Folks to Louise's. I did dishes, baked buns & went to Lunds. Pete here at 7:30. To Carroll with Leo & Ida. "On the Avenue." Really good.
[added later, arrow to Dot T.: Dorothy Thomas (Ruth Bolger's sister was in my grade)]

My comments:  A very interesting Sunday, to me, with a number of different people, doing different things than she has been since the first of the year. I suspect she is 'trying to find herself.' What do you think?

"On the Avenue" starred Dick Powell, Madeleine Carroll and Alice Fay with the Ritz Brothers…



Families are Forever!  ;-)
