Scope and Contents

The Jeanne Yvonne Pinard Bird Papers consist chiefly of a diary kept during a trip to Europe with her husband in from June to September 1939. The diary contains descriptions of the voyage to Liverpool and subsequent travels in Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, England and Scotland.

Diary entries are frequently accompanied by Bird's pen-and-ink sketches of sights, statues, architectural details and other travelers.
