Series III. Marian Anderson journals, notebooks, calendars, date books, expense books, and notes

11 Boxes

Arranged chronologically in three subseries.

Most of Marian Anderson's journals and notebooks are either spiral bound notepads or bound monthly or yearly calendars. The notebooks often cover several years and include notes about appointments, meetings, expenses, grocery lists, sometimes recipes, and some reflections on her travels. Where notebooks contain programs and song texts, these are specifically described in the container list. For the most part, Anderson maintained these notebooks, calendars, and expense books as an aid to documenting her expenses for preparing income tax forms. She often kept detailed records of taxi fares, tips, and meals when traveling.
