The George R. Heusinkveld diaries document the life of George R. Heusinkveld through his graduation from Northwestern Junior College (NWJC). The diaries also provide information and perspective into Heusinkveld’s family, his friends, NWJC, and the public schools, Reformed churches, farms, and towns of Sioux County. Collectively, these diaries provide detailed evidence of Dutch-American Reformed Church in America (RCA) life in Sioux County, Iowa in the 1920s and 1930s from the vantage point of a curious and articulate male teenager.
