Minnie E. Atteberry Papers
Scope and Content Note
The papers contain diaries, correspondence consisting mostly of Atteberry's draft letters to her relatives and other individuals, and a small number of other papers such as a life insurance policy, a mortgage, personal property assessments, a bill of sale, and others.
Atteberry started keeping her diaries in 1934. The early entries for the years 1934-1935 are very short, usually about her son's work schedule and the weather. Her daily accounts of events become more detailed over time. By 1954, Atteberry evidently kept a separate record of her own daily activities, as well as a record of those of her son Lawrence, with few exceptions when he wrote the diary himself. Both diaries are written in the third person.
