Note

[Professor Alden kept a diary from 1891 to 1924, a period which encompassed his adult life from age 18 until six months prior to his death. The pocket journals include brief entries for each day of the year, recording the weather, the day's primary activities (often citing particular restaurants and nearly always mentioning what the author had read) and occasional notes on historical events (the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the outbreak of World War I, etc.)]
