This diary was recorded from July 30 through August 17, 1938 by Andrew Jackson Greene. Greene recorded all of his innermost thoughts about the day. He recorded rare sightings, conversations that he recalled, how he slept, what he thought about the Bible lessons he heard, almost everything that happened to him during the day. He provided information to readers in a very real way. In this diary one can find information about the churches he attended, the culture of Appalachian State Teachers College at the time, some local news, and community events.
