Strang family diaries by Strang family( Archival Material )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Series of seventeen diary volumes written by members of the Strang family between 1878 and 1910. Ten of the diaries were written by Alice Margaret Strang in Los Angeles, California, from 1895-1910, when she was between the ages of twelve and twenty-seven. Her nearly daily diary entries focus on her family, friends, school attendance, church and religious activities, and travel by train to the east coast (to the World's Fair in St.Louis in 1904 and to a church conference in Pittsburgh in 1909). Alice also includes references to various political events, including the outbreak of the Spanish-American War (1895-1901 diary), the election of William McKinley (1895-1901 diary) and a series of entries on his assassination (1901-1902 diary), the death of Queen Victoria (1895-1901 diary), the inauguration of William Howard Taft (1909 diary), and the bomb attack on the Los Angeles Times building (1910 diary). Five of the other diaries were written by Alice's father Robert Edwin Strang between 1876 and 1909 in Marshalltown, Iowa, while traveling throughout the eastern United States, and in Los Angeles. His diaries focus on expense accounting and his daily activities, and his 1876 diary recounts in detail his travels through Cincinnati, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York, including detailed descriptions of the Smithsonian Institution and other landmarks in Washington, D.C. There is also a single diary written by Alice's mother, Harriet Lemert, in Marshalltown from 1878-1879 and which includes comments on her daily activities. Also included with the collection is an autograph book belonging to Robert Strang (1876-1878), which includes entries from friends in Iowa, New York, Colorado, and Ohio, and two photographs of Alice Strang (one taken c.1900 and the other around the time of her marriage in 1910).
