75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - June 22, 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.
Here is the short entry for Tuesday, June 22:
Warmer. Mosquito bites. To town in pm. Made ice cream. Listened to Louis-Braddock. Clark & Leib over eating ice cream.
Here is the long entry for Tuesday, June 22:
Warmer yet. Did I ever got (sic) mosquito bitten last nite. I did dishes & separator & Mom washed. All through by 10:00. I slept till about 4:30 & then went in to town before supper. Did chores, made ice cream, listened to Braddock-Louis fight. To bed about 10:00. Clark & Lieb here in evening.
My comments: Heavyweight boxing championship fight on the radio - my, how times have changed.
From Wikipedia: "The stage was set for Louis's title shot. On the night of the fight, June 22, 1937, Braddock was able to knock Louis down in round one, but afterward could accomplish little. After inflicting constant punishment, Louis defeated the "Cinderella Man" by knockout in Round eight. Louis's ascent to the World Heavyweight Championship was complete."
