The Diaries Of Lou G. Hare

This page contains the Diaries of Lou G. Hare, October 12, 1885 – September 25, 1886. Preface, Footnotes, Chapter Breaks and Chinook Translations by John Frost, Grandson of Lou Hare.

Below is an introduction and an electronic transcription by Diane Sterne for the years that Hare spent in Granite Creek.

Diane Sterne has extracted much interesting and useful information from the Diary and compiled it into separate documents.

Lou Hare liked to draw and here are some examples, along with some photographs with him. They are not specific to Granite Creek but nevertheless are from the period and encompass the environment and lifestyle.
