Greetings. Dorothy's daily diary entries begin on Monday, January 1, 1945, and continue thru the years 1945 and 1946, when “Dot” was a high school student on the south side of Chicago.

Accompanying my mother's diary entries are photos and videos, and brief news summaries, plus links to additional information.

My father's (and, of course, Dot's husband Dave's) autobiography begins here.

Please see the Dot's Diary About page for some background on this project.

Thank you for visiting. —Dot's son, David
