Journal 39: (The Garlands) Barrington IL, May 17-Dec. 11, 2013
Scope and Content of the Collection
Appointment calendars, daily journals, photo albums and supplemental material preserved by Alma Boge, from high school onward.
Alma derived satisfaction from documenting and preserving a record of events, activities, and people. The appointment calendars (1958-1975) were a means of planning, for herself and for her growing family. The journals (1976-2015) served as a record of daily activities and a means of reference. Alma’s saving and recording extended to maintaining photo albums dating back to her high school graduation in 1944. Together these materials document a middle-class American woman’s life spanning the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
