Known by several names including the Fez Diary and Fez Journal, many of these pages of Clifford's journal were found within a
locked steel bankers box along with a treasure trove of other artifacts, photographs and documents in the sub basement levels of the
old National Guard Armory that stood close by the State Exposition Building in Exposition Park.
While far from complete, the surviving pages of this journal have provided the framework for the retelling of Clifford T. Bell's
