This exhibit provides transcriptions of selected pages from the Diary of Joseph Peace Hazard (1807-1892). Occasional minor edits have been made for clarity.

A son of Rowland and Mary Peace Hazard, Joseph kept meticulous expense records for most of his life, which make up the bulk of his nearly 400-page diary. He traveled around the world and compiled his notations in numerous locations. He also included narrative passages about his experience and his family's history.
