These diaries were recorded during two separate periods in Mary Freeman's life. There are three volumes written as a teenager
from January 1, 1890 to December 31, 1891. Entries concern her daily activities such as school, visiting with friends, family
matters, attending church, playing piano for church groups, and a summer visit to Nevada in 1891. These volumes also include
various lists of parties attended, books read, and miscellaneous social events.
Mary Freeman, from Woodland, California, attended Stanford University from 1893 to 1897, when she graduated with an a.b. in
English. She lived in Roble Hall and, judging from the Stanford Quad, was not particularly active in student organizations.
In 1908 she married John Hammond Crabbe.
