Old Post on Journals and Diaries November 11, 2021 3:01 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a post I saw some years ago on Metafilter. It was about a library or institution that was collecting diaries and journals kept by ordinary (not famous) people. I've been unable to find searching on the site and was hoping someone here recalled it or could find it. Thank you!

Brooklyn Art Library? Appeared here. It's sketchbooks but also includes other sorts of journals.
