Charles Lambert Diary (Ms 94)

University of Utah Marriott Library, Manuscripts Division

The Charles Lambert Diary (1863-1909) is a four-volume, carbon-copy typescript of the original that tells of Lambert's activities as a stonecutter, bridge builder, and worker at a paper mill. After his death in 1892, diary entries were continued by his wife, Alice Cannon Lambert, to 1909. Alice Lambert's entries largely discuss family matters. The document is incomplete, as only volumes 6, 7, and 9 through 13 of the original diary are included. Charles Lambert (1816-1892) was an 1843 convert to the Mormon Church who immigrated from Liverpool, England, to Nauvoo, Illinois, in 1844. There, he served in the Nauvoo Legion, and later participated in the Mormon migration to Utah. A register is available.
