Dorothy Burr Thompson diary, August 8, 1920-April 9, 1922
Dorothy Burr Thompson's diary, in which she writes about her sophomore through junior years at Bryn Mawr College. She records her impressions of and interactions with friends, classmates, and teachers. She discusses books and authors she is reading (Wilde, Hedda Gabler, Moliere, the Iliad, the Odyssey) while rarely making the distinction between classwork and books she reads for pleasure. She writes of trips into Philadelphia to see the ballet, opera, concerts, as well as performances at Bryn Mawr. She also discusses her struggle to settle on a course of study, her concerns about being at the top of her class, and her anxieties about developing and maintaining friendships.
