    Abstract: Entries in this diary, a 1925 Daily Reminder Book, start in 1936, when the author was a young girl. She initially wrote about attending various social functions, going to church, and a part-time job. Other entries cover single days, such as the one for Christmas Day, 1936, in which she details her working-class family's holiday. Of particular interest is an 11-page section titled "Reactions of a Defense Worker, Sept. 27, 1942," in which the author gives a firsthand account of her job at the Chevrolet Motor and Axle Plant during World War II.
