mass observation diary 12 May

Would you keep a one-day diary
for Mass Observation?
Wednesday 12th May 2010

May 12thIn 1937, Mass Observation called for people
from all parts of the UK to record everything
they did and thought from when they woke
up in the morning to when they went to sleep
at night on 12th May. The resulting diaries
provide a wonderful glimpse into the everyday
lives of all sorts of people in the late 1930s.
They are stored, with many other diaries and
papers, at the Mass Observation Archive at the University of Sussex.
