75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 6, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 6, 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.

Here is the short entry for Saturday, March 6:

To work. Swell day. Dad & I out home to heart dinner. Typed all pm. Started walking home & Edith & Fat R. picked me up. Ate & did up work. Peck called & wants me to come up tomorrow. Listened to Mitzi Green. Washed a few things.

Here is the long entry for a Saturday, March 6:

 Must be spring! To work about 8:30. I went  home to dinner. Edna Bylund's shower at Wolfe's. Norma S. came in and gave me the sweetest friendship bracelet. I walked out home. Fat & Edith picked me up. Did lot of typing. Really nice out. While doing dishes Peck called & wants me there tomorrow. Washed out my twin sweaters & to bed early.

My comments: We will learn more about "Peck" in coming days… 

Mitzi Green "child star" who appeared on Broadway at 16 in Rodger's and Hart's Babes in Arms (1937). Two of Green's numbers in the musical were "My Funny Valentine," and "The Lady is a Tramp."

Families are Forever!  ;-)
