About Robert Shields (diarist)

  • Reverend Robert William Shields (May 17, 1918 – October 15, 2007) was a former Minister and high school English teacher who lived in Dayton, Washington, United States, and left behind a diary of 37.5 million words that fills 94 boxes.
  • The diary chronicles every five minutes of his life from 1972 until a stroke disabled him in 1997.
  • Shields's diary was longer than those kept by the journalist Edward Robb Ellis (21 million words), the poet Arthur Crew Inman (17 million words), and perhaps the most famous diarist of all, Samuel Pepys (1.25 million words).
