Summary
This collection includes forty-nine clippings of Kate Milner Rabb's Indianapolis Star newspaper column, "The Hoosier Listening Post," range from March 14, 1935 to July 25, 1935 that contain transcribed entries from diaries kept by Helen Clift of New Castle, Indiana in 1863 and 1865. Helen used her diary to record her daily chores, the weather, visitors, social activities, and other happenings in New Castle. Her 1863 diary also recorded her time teaching in Economy, Wayne County, Indiana and noted that she was paid "sixty-five dollars for the term or one dollar a day - very good wages." Rabb's columns also include several letters she received from readers who commented on Clift's diaries and offered additional information about people mentioned in the column and other historical context
