This diary was recorded by Andrew Jackson Greene from October 9th through December 19th during the year of 1934. Greene included a multitude of personal reflections, insight into the world of Appalachian State Teachers College, and information about what was happening in the community at that time. For instance, Greene wrote in this diary about the “yardstick epidemic” because a new business was using yardsticks for advertising, in addition to writing about the highlights of daily chapel.
