Andrew Jackson Greene wrote this diary from February 11 through June 9, 1933. Greene uses this diary to write about the weather, the community, and especially his work. During this period, the college is going through a big time of growth and sports are taking a big chunk of the attention. Greene wrote that he believed there were times that sports took too much attention time, whereas the academics do not get enough. He includes information about what he is doing in his classes, what he thinks could benefit certain students, and the faculty meetings. He even mentions Lovill hall, a building currently on campus at Appalachian State University. In addition, Greene turned 50 years old on March 2nd.
