On-going documentation of transcripts of Elin Wägner's more than 100 handwritten notebooks and diaries made by the journalist Barbro Alving (Bang). After Wägner's death in 1949, Bang compiled a large amount of biographical material, with the plan to write a biography of Wägner, which was never completed. Bang’s transcripts, made on a typewriter, are starting to fade in the archive.

This section of workbook no. 44 describes Elin Wägner and Flory Gates' visit to the farmer Mina Hofstetter in the summer of 1937. Hofstetter developed an organic, livestock-free farm near Zurich. Mina Hofstetter's practice strongly influenced them and informed, a.o., the book Peace with the Earth, that Elin Wägner and Elisabeth Tamm published in 1940.
