75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 12, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 12, 1939 
 
Returning after a 9 day break... ;-)


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
