Scrapbooks that chronicle Ernest Hemingway’s childhood from diapers to high school are available online.
The J-F-K Library and Museum in Boston’s digitized pages from a handful of scrapbooks that his mother made to document his early years.
Hundreds of pages can be viewed at www.jfklibrary.org, on what would have been the Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning author’s 114th birthday.
The curator of the Hemingway Collection says they’ve sat in a vault for decades.
She says only a few researchers have seen it in its entirety.
