Series 4: Diaries, 1949-2002
2.5 linear feet
Boxes 4-6

Diaries (29 volumes) record Mitchell's personal and professional activities, plans, aspirations, and memories. Entries range from extremely brief notes to lengthy, substantial reflections on the day's events. Most volumes contain drawings and sketches; many also include loose items such as clippings, letters, notes, drawings, and printed material. Sometimes coins are attached, accompanied by a personal memory relating to the coin's date. A substantial number of diary entries were recorded on loose sheets of paper.
Volumes are numbered and arranged chronologically. Several volumes contain overlapping dates; some record multiple years, and some years fill more than a single volume. Entries on loose pages, also arranged by year, follow volume 29.
