This diary includes daily entries from February 5 to March 23, 1920. Many of these entries are about Andrew Jackson Greene’s work at Appalachian Training School. He seemed to be struggling to find the time to get everything done in the first few entries. He wrote about church in most of the entries. He attended Cove Creek Church, the Baptist church in Boone, and Bethel Church. The entries also tell what the weather was like each day, especially the days that were unusually cold or when it snowed.
