Diaries: Esther McCoy's Diary, 1926

About the Project

Celebrate Women's History Month by transcribing the 1926 diary of Esther McCoy. McCoy is remembered for work as an architectural historian, critic, and proponent of Southern California modern architecture of the early to mid-twentieth century. The diary documents McCoy's first year in New York City after she left the University of Michigan to begin her writing career. In New York, McCoy moved in avant-garde literary circles and conducted research for Theodore Dreiser. This, other diaries, and extensive material which documents her life and career are fully digitized and available through the Esther McCoy Papers on the Archives of American Art website.
