More InformationShow full item record
The Madalyn Kuhn Papers contains her diaries while living in the Lisbon and Fargo-West Fargo, N.D. area. She kept a daily diary from 1932, when the author was 14, through 2000. From a researcher’s point of view, the diaries offer invaluable information on life in North Dakota, growing up in the 1930s, teen issues, social life, entertainment (especially movies), fashion, finances, diet and nutrition, dating, working conditions for single women, widowhood, single mother issues, and weather. The collection is organized into four series: Diaries, Typed Transcripts, Financial Journals, and School Papers.
