Scope and content
Series consists of records documenting the personal and professional life of Jane Rittenhouse.
The series contains diaries, journals, and letters chronicling her life from the age of 14 in 1927 to the age of 86 in 1998. The diaries and journals run from 1927 to 1998 and are kept very nearly on a daily basis, with a gap (1944-1946), as military regulations restricted personal writings during the war.
The diaries contain personal thoughts and experiences and commentary on contemporary news and politics. The diaries contain extensive comments and summaries made in 1980 and again in the 1990s.
