Women's Travel Diaries

Students and scholars of women's history and the history of international relations may be interested in this extensive digital repository of women's travel diaries, courtesy of Duke University Libraries. This collection, culled from the university's David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library features diaries authored by British and American women during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Many of these diaries were penned by missionaries, providing insight into the the daily experiences and perspectives of women who participated in missionary work places around the world - including the continent of Africa and the countries of India and China. Visitors are invited to browse these diaries in a number of ways, including by date, location, subject, or source collection. In total, this collection includes 162 entirely digitized diaries, most dating from the first half of the twentieth century.
