Memorabilia Monday: Juliette Huxley’s Diaries


Juliette Huxley’s diaries are not her confessional journals, but rather her daily planners. From 1950 to 1987, she bought roughly the same planner. She relied mainly on two vendors one being Mudie’s “Bond Street Diary” and the other Frank Smythson’s “Wafer” Book Diary. She only bought two diaries from other companies over 37 years.

Below are various entries. The best is from 1987 one of her last: “deserted home – Amen.”





In case, you want to see the woman in action.
