3.2: Diary Notations, 1941-1973

Subseries consists of files of mostly undated notes, writings, and other material. The material in these files was most likely created at the same time and in the same way as the more formal diary entries. However, over time, this material came to be maintained separately in bulk files due to the lack of dates or consistent dating. Also included are a notebook, in which Cornell jotted down some notes, and some of Betty Cornell Benton's notes about the diaries, written while she was preparing Cornell's papers for donation.
