Jesse Lowe SmithJesse Lowe Smith kept a journal from 1888 until his death in 1934. In it, Mr. Smith recorded daily activities, school and community events, travels, and much more. Because Mr. Smith was involved in many civic affairs (He founded the Highland Park Historical Society and served on the Highland Park Tree and Parkway Commission and the Library Board of Trustees among many community contributions.) and was well acquainted with community leaders, his journal provides a fascinating glimpse into the daily life of Highland Park in the early decades of the 20th Century.
