75 Years Ago Today
June 28, 1939
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.
Here is the daily entry for Wednesday, June 28:
Did usual work. Dad bro't Mom & Buss out in morning. I made a white coconut layer cake. Had beefsteak for dinner. Pete finished laying corn by. Mom & Buss & I worked in garden in pm. Really looks keen. Over after Pete. Home, chores, made ice cream. Ate, listened to Joe Louis T.K.O. Galento. Did dishes, folks left, took baths & went to bed.
Always interesting to see when she/they listened to the radio!
June 28- Joe Louis recovers from a third round knockdown and retains his world Heavyweight title, knocking out Tony Galento in round four, at New York.
Families are Forever! ;-)
