About the Project
What is classified as history? Historians use diaries as windows to the past to determine how the average person lived during a certain time period. At 105 years old, Gertrude Farrington donated her daily journal chronicling 15 years of her life in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Learn about life in the late 1980s and early 1990s through the eyes of Farrington’s personal narrative.
