Description:

What were children in Iowa concerned with in the 1870s? This nice digital collection from the University of Iowa Libraries starts to answer that question by bringing together 11 different diaries from young Iowans writing from 1862 to 1907. The diaries were provided by the Iowa Women's Archives, the State Historical Society of Iowa, and the Old Capitol Museum. Visitors can click on the Highlights of Collection to get started. One rather fascinating highlight here is the geography homework done by Lucy Van Voorhis White in the 1880s. Users can look at her faithful reproductions of the major rivers in states surrounding Iowa, and may be especially fascinated by her. Visitors can browse through the diaries at their leisure and also look around by decade.
