The collection consists of three diaries kept by John Alfred Borg in Dixon County, Nebraska, from 1888-1892 and 1896-1899. Borg primarily writes about farming in Dixon County, along with family happenings, such as building a house in 1889 and landscaping the yard. He also wrote about economic conditions. The diaries are written in Swedish, but a typed translation entitled, "John Alfred Borg: Diary of a Swedish Immigrant, 1888-1899" is included.
