About this collection

Margaret Walker Alexander's personal journals make up a significant section of the personal papers. Dr. Alexander wrote her journals in several types of notebooks including spirals, composition books, small notepads, and bound diaries. These volumes provide a plethora of information about Alexander as a writer and a person can be extremely personal and provide her thoughts into many subjects. The content of an individual journal can be very diverse. A single journal may contain drafts of poetry, parts of essays or books, class notes, astrological charts, handwritten letters to be typed, Christmas card lists, menus, and recipes, in addition to her thoughts and daily doings. Some journals start in a particular year and pick up again several days, months, or even years later, so the arrangement of the journals are, at best, only roughly chronological. Each journal is assigned a number and is arranged roughly chronological order. Photocopying restrictions and use restrictions due to preservation reasons are outlined on the box inventory.
