Diary, 1931-1936 of an unidentified young woman, titled "A Book of Personal Reflections of an Impersonal Brat." Geneve (her name is noted in the inside front cover, but her last name is not legible) was a student and 21 years old when she started the diary in 1931. She also notes that she graduated from Bradford Academy , MA '29, Lake Erie College, OH, '33 and Katharine Gibbs School, MA '34.
Most entries are reflections on the meaning of life and love and her own emotional state and some are copied citations of well known writers. Also includes what looks like attempts of her own writings and she does say at some point that she would like to be a writer.
Geneve wrote in irregular intervals, and though the entries span 6 years, they only take up about 20 pages.
