dc.description.abstract This diary was formerly described as an unattributed diary and entitled: Diary (Portsmouth, Va.), 1901, but has now been attributed to Florence Barber of Norfolk, Virginia. In brief daily entries she talks about the weather, chores, and social life, trips to town, church, attending meetings, etc. In August she went to visit churches and schools in Georgia and Alabama, like Atlanta University and Spelman College, both historically black schools. She also mentions teaching music, attending educational meetings in Portsmouth and being elected president of the local YMCA. September 3 is the last entry in this diary. en_US
dc.description.abstract Research conducted by William and Mary students in 2011 pointed to Florence Barber as the owner and author of this diary. Their research also corrected that the diary was actually from 1902, not 1901 and that the author lived in Norfolk, not Portsmouth, Virginia. The diary was transcribed and made available online in 2012. en_US
