Creators Mary Whithall Worthington
Abstract These diaries are both delightful and revealing, with Worthington moving seamlessly from discussions of extracurricular activities, especially theater, handsome young men, bickering among friends, and rivalries between classes to such issues as suffrage, Free Trade, socialism, and government corruption. In describing both her own and her friends' and classmates' views, Worthington shows how a generation of young women was coming to terms with changing social and political mores, as well as some of the motivations of these second-generation Progressives.
