Historic Climate Diaries and Journals

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2021

Diaries and Journals containing weather information in a non-tabular format. Records date from 1735 through the early 20th century. Much of the weather and climate data recorded by the founding fathers of this country (Washington, Jefferson and Franklin to name a few) were archived in original manuscripts, then microfilmed and stored at the National Archive and Records Administration (NARA). Those records available from NARA on microfilm have been imaged and placed on the EV2 system. To date, there are more than 42 million of those images on-line. These colonial diaries and data are a treasure trove to the climatologist seeking data on climate of the 19th century.
