Peary diary now available

Remember in early 2018 when we first started posting Marie Peary’s diary entries? That project began when we decided to find somebody in our collection who was writing diaries 100 years ago. It just happened to be that Marie was doing that, and is an excellent, detailed diarist. After a year hiatus where we focused instead on Mattie Fletcher’s diary, we’re revisiting Marie Peary’s for 1920/2020.

But have you wanted more? What about the diary entries for the other years in that diary? What if you just have to know what comes next, before we get around to posting it? You’re in luck! We’ve posted the entire scanned diary, with the transcription, on DUNE. Feel free to download and read to your heart’s content!
