Anonymous dating diary
This collection contains a holograph notebook recording the dating experiences of an unnamed young man who was most likely a University of California student during World War II. The notebook consists of 162 numbered entries of dates with several girls. Each entry documents the girls' names, places, the activity of the date, and observations about each date/girl. The diary begins May 22, 1943, and the last entry is dated March 8, 1947. The log ends with these words: " And thus I end this, the first report on girls that I know, or in many cases, have known. I close with the realization that my search is not yet over. And so I look forward to new faces and new loves."
