This diary was written from June 20 through August 8, 1940 by Andrew Jackson Greene. Daily entries are composed of Greene’s personal reactions to the vents of the day. In it he shared the most intimate details of his day from what he had to eat, how long he slept, and conversations that he held with people. Frequently he wrote about his church, Willowdale and his place of work Appalachian State Teachers College. He also wrote about many different areas of the community, from Vilas to Cozy Nook, Boone, Brushy Fork, and Mabel.
