Margaret Agle Interview

Description

Margaret Agle is the sister of William Leonard Eury who was a librarian at Appalachian from 1929 until his retirement in 1970. Margaret was able to attend Appalachian State Teachers College thanks to her brother. She began her studies here in 1934 but had to stop half way to help care for her family. She eventually came back to Appalachian and earned her bachelor's degree in education and a master's in English. After graduation she taught as an adjunct professor at ASU until she began teaching at Watauga High School where she retired. Margaret passed away in 2014 at the age of 97 leaving five children behind.

Information discussed in the interview: childhood, early education, attendance at Appalachian State University, the dormitories, social events and habits, daily life, relationships, sports, class life, jobs held while at school, the library, her brother William Leonard Eury, and life after graduation.
