Ex went to a yard sale today and brought it home along with an old 1937 El Rodeo USC yearbook. But my interest was more on the journal a lady wrote in dating from 1919. From what I could gather with her script writing, it centered mainly in Bakersfield/Taft aread of California. Her family were in the oil well worker ranks, but one son "arrived safely home in NY, returning on the USS Huron from France". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Huron_(ID-1408) "My boy Cappy is safely home" and the family was thrilled. There is a mix match of her daily entries, and she had another son named Warren who was train man and worked for a Conductor someone or other, as a brake man but unfortunately not caboose...which I guess was what Warren wanted. The end of the book (1933) is her very sad and destitue that warren had died and she didn't know how she was going to carry on without him but she guessed he just couldn't take the pain any more (I think he was in a car wreck). Anyway...I read it, and I felt like I was back there with her. Fascinating stuff.
