This diary was recorded from September 10 through November 7, 1931. In this diary, Greene provided an abundance of information about the Appalachian State Normal School. President Dougherty told students of the idea of making the school into a teacher’s college. This was a big time of change for the school. It was growing and work was intense. The football team was gaining interest, and excitement. Greene also wrote about the traveling he did, from Boone, to Mabel, to Kentucky, to Elizabethton, to Vilas. Greene also included much community information such as a first-hand account of the Stone murder trial.
