  Jim Bartle: Interesting. Green only has six games here, but three are against America's top players.
Aug-15-07  refutor: not particularly interesting...his strongest years were during the second world war where there would have been a lack of games, understandably. after that time, he probably played in local events but nothing that would be stored for history.

this is another gap in the chessgames database...non-super GM and non-russian games from all periods from the 1940s all the way up to the 1980s

if anybody has more games, please contribute!

  Jim Bartle: Makes sense. I was just surprised to see a guy with only six games listed, and see the names Fischer, Byrne, and Fine...

  Phony Benoni: Green was most active in the period 1935-1945 as a memeber of the Marshall Chess Club. He twice qualified for the U.S. Championship (1940, 1942), though he finished well down in the scoretable both times.

I recall him, still at Master level, playing at U.S. Opens in the 1970s and 1980s. Apparently, he was another who had to forsake serious chess to make a living.

He died in Lincoln, Nebraska, and was apparently well-known there as a 2007 scholastic tournament was named in his honor. Maybe we have some Huskers around here with a bit more information.

Jan-03-15  domradave: I played some speed chess with Green at the Queens Chess club in the early 80s. I couldn't beat him. He always opened with the English opening.
