Title

A Record of Events in the Appalachian Training School for Teachers [January 1915 - December 1932]

Description

These frequent journal entries describe academic, athletic, religious and social events and activities at the institution from January 1915 to December 1932. As a faculty member, Andrew Jackson Greene writes about President Dougherty's remarks and speeches at meetings and assemblies, chapel programs, faculty, staff, students, visiting clergy and dignitaries from other North Carolina institutions, and sporting events as well as routine campus activities and events. During this period, Appalachian Training School for Teachers was changed to Appalachian State Normal School, and later to Appalachian State Teachers College. Often reflecting his own opinions and observations, Greene's entries provide insight into how topics of the day, such as the Great Depression, were viewed at the time. Greene also reports on the weather and mentions local places and people.
