What is now Appalachian State University in Boone began in 1899, when a group of citizens under the leadership of B. B. Dougherty and his brother D. D. began a movement to establish a school. Warren traces the school's development over the first fifty years and its economic impact on the region.
In 1929, persistent, stubborn B.B. Dougherty installed a tiny, one-woman music department at the college he founded - Appalachian State Teachers College at Boone. Twelve years and a couple of wars and depressions later, the dream of a useful and nationally recognized music department has come true.
