My best guess is that it was Louis Lomax. Check his wikipedia entry. He seems like an interesting guy.
Dad mentioned it wasn’t particularly revealing, saying, “An entry might be, “Played golf. Claire, Dolores and the kids came over. Had a nice time.”” We chuckled.
I asked if I could take the book home, with no intention other than reading it.
Well, then, I thought of this – putting the contents on gushoppe.com
The book has entries for both 1964 and 1965. Here’s the 1 January page so you can see how Pop-Pop did it. I’ll be posting it in chronological order over the next two years. Hopefully, I’ll be able to include some other media from the time, too: photos, digitized home movies, who knows?
I’m going to transcribe the entries using Gus’ lines, which will make it something more verse-like, as well as using the first few words as each entry’s title.
I hope you enjoy it. 1964, Freeport, New York here we come!
