Series 3: Diaries , 1909-1973
1.3 Linear feet
Box 2-3

This series includes Macdonald-Wright's extensive diaries. There is one small bound diary from his time in Paris. The disbound diaries, originally in 5 binders, span over three decades and document the artist's experiences in California, excluding his trips abroad. The travel diaries were written on hotel stationary and notebooks during Macdonald-Wright's numerous trips to Hawaii, Japan, and Europe. Prior to their arrival at the archives, portions of the diaries were edited and some pages have sections cut out and repasted on different pages.
The disbound diaries and travel diaries are grouped separately and arranged chronologically within each grouping. The disbound diaries were originally received in five large binders with pages numbered from 1-1502. These pages were removed from the binders and placed in folders arranged by date. The travel diaries come after the disbound diaries.
