Elena B. Shute Diary
Scope and Contents Note
A five-year diary of a young girl in Belfast, Maine who later became an actress. The diary provides insights into early twentieth century childhood life in rural Maine. Topics range from recreational (skating and sledding) to serious (a family friend dying in an insane asylum), focusing not on the daily routine but on the special events which distinguish each day from the last. Included also is a photograph of Elena and a picture postcard sent by Elena showing the New York skyline.
