Series 4: Diaries , circa 1952-2004
10 Linear feet
Boxes 13-18, 33-38

The series includes more informal writings by Jacob Kainen: diary entries, journal entries, and two dismantled journal notebooks. Ruth Cole Kainen's extensive diary entries about Jacob Kainen and their life, which consist of fragments and complete entries, are also included in this series. A large portion of Mrs. Kainen's diary entries deal with Jacob Kainen's two sons and with his retrospectives. Ruth Kainen edited, annotated, and revised her diary entries, so draft fragments, notes, and revised versions are included.
A second subseries of diary entries are entirely by Ruth Cole Kainen, and cross-filed according to topics and people, arranged alphabetically.
