|Title: ||Reel 11: Diaries, November 9, 1901 to August 15, 1908|
|Authors: ||Straight, Willard|
|Issue Date: ||17-Jan-2011|
|Description: ||The diaries vary in character and extent. The early books are not day-by-day records but occasional comments on his experiences, bits of self-analysis, and attempts at fiction based on his observations.
Later Straight often pasted in his diary carbon copies of detailed letters he wrote to friends. The diaries for the Russo-Japanese War period also contain a number of sketches.
In Mukden he kept a fairly systematic diary, recording his activities and naming his visitors and associates. There are occasional gaps, and some entries are very brief.|
