This diary was written by Andrew Jackson Greene from November 16, 1933 through January 13, 1934. In this diary the final exams and start of a new quarter come and go. He continued to spend much time at the Greene Inn when he was in Boone. He typically traveled to Boone on a bus from Vilas. Greene hated assigning final grades. He became frustrated with the students because they didn’t seem to care about learning as much as he expected they would. He contemplated effective teaching practices at night and resolved to allow his students to work a project they are interested in for the spring quarter. As in his other diaries, Greene also included daily weather reports, church information, and records of travel and visits with neighbors.
