Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

Diary of Lloyd Hartman (1913-1987) of Spokane, Washington. Entries are fairly regular for the years 1937-1940 and record daily activities, weather and health. The writer mentions social outings, like visits to movies, his work at a bank and occasionally comments on the world-political situation.

The diary was started in 1937 when he was in his early 20's. Each page has entries for five years but most are filled out for 1937-1940 only. Most of October's pages are blank. The writer tells of his daily life, family and Father's death, schooling, jobs, CCC work, his girlfriend, weather, cars and car trouble, football scores, travels around the area in Washington and Idaho, movies, restaurants and the start of WWII. A few entries are in shorthand as he was a business student.

Also includes a photograph of an unidentified woman.


  • Creation: 1937-1941
