James Layton fonds

  • CA CIM 2019.020
  • Fonds
  • 1948-1981

Fonds consists of ten diaries kept by James Layton, covering the years 1948-1981, and a Time Book. Layton made daily entries in the diaries, noting the weather, activities, social interactions and, occasionally, notable external events. Typical activities included logging, fishing, working on an oyster lease, digging clams, gardening, visiting, reading and writing letters. Times of planting and harvesting the garden, sightings of wildlife, and names of people living nearby or visiting on boats are recorded.
