Julia Mosher

Julia Mosher Diary

Early 20th-century Phoenix comes alive through the diary and materials relating to the life of 13 year-old Julia Mosher.

Julia was the granddaughter of Samuel Lount, the pioneer business man who started the first icemaking plant in Phoenix in 1879. Julia was given a diary as a Christmas gift in 1899 and through the following year, she vividly described her daily activities.

More materials and activities available in the Julia Mosher Trunk, which can be rented by teachers in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Julia Mosher Diary is available in a Free Downloadable PDF by months.
