Doris Holmes Blake - Correspondence with Arthur Lake Holmes and Lucy Wentworth Holmes, April 1930 - March 1931
About the Project
As we dig even further into Doris Holmes Blake's correspondence with her parents, a fuller and more detailed picture of life in the early 1930s comes into view. Imagine driving from Boston to Washington DC without the benefit of the US interstate system—let alone a GPS—and needing a friend to advise you on the best route to take, naming cities and towns all down the East Coast to guide you ever so slowly to your destination. This and many other facets of daily life, now as foreign to us as another country, paint a compelling portrait of the Holmes family's day-to-day. Fall into their world with your fellow volunpeers, and help flesh out our knowledge of Doris herself!
