Scope and Content Note
Diary belonging to Alida Clawson Clark, a founder of Arkansas' Southland College. The diary includes several diary entries dating between April and May 1873; lists of correspondents in 1873 and 1874; and budget notes, including on school fees, donations, and aid to students, dating from 1873-1876. One budget entry is signed by Alida Clark, and a diary entry mentions "our dear son-in-law, T. F. Wright," so the diary has been attributed to Clark, but some entries may also have been written by her husband, Calvin Clark.
