Thanks for your feedback, readers! We will start Virginia's journal now - sharing entries when I can. She is now 21 years old. I don't know what has happened in her life since her last journal. The Great Depression began on October 29, 1929, seven months after John's last journal entry.
This is the journal of Virginia Lee Scott, my grandmother, written when she was seventeen and first dating my grandfather, John Arnold Wilson. It's a dairy published by Media Drug Stores and includes space for two entries per day, with facts about the era printed at the bottom, which I have included in italics. Following, 1928, is the journal of John Arnold Wilson, my grandfather, at age nineteen and in love with my grandmother, followed by my grandmother's journal in 1931.
