Overview and metadata sections

John M. Griscom (1881/1882-?) was born circa 1881-1882 in New Jersey, to William Wade Griscom and Sarah M. Cooper Griscom. He married Mary L. Griscom, and the couple had one daughter, Mary L. Griscom, born circa 1921. John M. Grisom was a physician who lived and practiced in Moorestown, Burlington, New Jersey.

This collection is composed of the single, handwritten diary of John M. Griscom. The diary focuses on Griscom's attendance at "Friendly Study Group" meetings, a group, according to Griscom, that gathers for "the study of the influences and causes leading to the separation of 1827." Entries describe discussions had at these meetings.
