We are pleased to announce that the Rural Diary Archive of the University of Guelph Library has added to its collection transcripts of the diaries Jennie Fleming and her nephew Roy Fleming kept of their trip to Scotland and England in 1903.
- Jean “Jennie” Fleming (main page) – Diary 1903 transcription with notes is at https://ruraldiaries.lib.uoguelph.ca/transcribe/items/show/227
- Roy F Fleming (main page) — Diary 1903 transcription with notes and some illustrations at https://ruraldiaries.lib.uoguelph.ca/transcribe/items/show/228
The diaries are in the University of Guelph Library Guelph McLaughlin Archives–Scottish Collection (XS1 MS A337 ) and can be located through a search of Primo.
We hope to donate in 2019 Roy’s second book concerning their 1903 itinerary in Europe.
We had previously posted a blog entry about Jennie’s travel diary of 1869 and Roy’s childhood diary of 1891 being added to the Rural Diary Archive as well as a short description of Jennie’s 1869 travel diary. Those two diaries are held at Grey Roots Museum and Archives in the Ruth Larmour Fonds PF114.
