Mildred Deyo Diaries

 Collection
Identifier: MS 00124
This collection contains the diaries of Mildred Deyo (1884-1982) of Newburgh, New York. The entries describe her daily life, social activities, travels, and in some cases views on social and political issues.

At the time she wrote her diaries, Mildred Deyo lived at home with her father and sister. The family was well-off; Mildred did not have to work. She is on the board of directors of a Day Nursery, puts on fundraisers, and regularly spends time at the local tennis club.

Mildred Deyo wrote a total of 30 volumes of diaries, dating from 1904-1914, but only 7 of those are present here. Included with the diaries is a copy of her 1982 obituary from The Times Herald and several pages of handwritten notes about the diary, provided by a previous owner.
