On offer is a super, original five year, 1934 to 1938, Depression Era manuscript diary handwritten by a young Hamler Ohio man named Raymond Gustav Hoops, 21 years old in 1934, the first year of the diary. Of German ancestry and from a very large family, his father was Gust Hoops and his mother Erma Hoops. The 1930 census informs that he as the only son of six: his sisters were Hattie, Amelia, Montana, Marian and Lulu. The 1940 census shows him as a lodger in the Hayes household and he's listed as a teacher. He started teaching in 1935 as stated in the diary. It also says he never married. His entries cover all the basics of a young man in college: exams, work, classes and of course familial times and plenty of names mentioned among his family and friends. This was an extremely active young man. While this is a Depression Era diary there seems to be little effect of the awful economic times for Raymond. His obituary states: "Prof. Raymond G. Hoops, 61, a faculty member at Fitchburg State College since 1958, died suddenly this past weekend. Professor Hoops taught graphic arts in the Industrial Arts Department and was widely known in the graphic arts education field. He received his B.S. degree in education from Bowling Green University and his Master's degree from Ohio State University. He completed a sixth year program at New York University and did additional work at Michigan State University. He is survived by a sister." A dedicated diarist the book is filled save for February 1st through May 31st of 1934 and then he didn't stop writing until 5 years later, December 31st, 1938. The 4¼ x 5½ inch book is overall G+..
