The incident took place outside the bus terminal of South Station, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The diaries, dated 1916, 1922, 1939, and 1943, were leather-bound.
Each volume was enclosed in gray boxes distinctly labelled “MS 2 Theo Brown Diaries”.
The diaries contain unique photographs and technical drawings of John Deere tractors and agricultural machinery as well as notes and illustrations relating to Brown’s family life and current events.
Please contact the University Archives & Special Collections, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, if you might have any information on these diaries.
