 File — Folder: 1

Scope and Contents

Gives a brief overview of his life, followed by journal entries dated August 1929-January 1934. Entries reflect his life as a Mormon teenager, focusing on farm work and school activities. There is a gap in the journal between 4 March 1930 and 6 September 1933; most entries were recorded after the latter date. Volume cover suggests that Richards lived in Cardston, Alberta, when he started writing. He moved to Calgary in 1933 to attend normal (teacher's training) school.
