Scope and Contents
The collection (1917; 1942; 1949-1952) contains six volumes of diaries that reflect the social and emotional issues that face a person who has a stammer. Diary entries usually start out with a notation of whether Seitz had trouble speaking that day, and if so, what the context was.
There is also a folder of papers that include a short memoir of life with a stammer, hand-written poetry, and descriptions of travel and work. The first folder in this collection contains a genealogical data sheet created about Corwin Seitz by Dennis M. Emerson in 2014.
