Description
Dr. John D. Green was an internationally renowned researcher in anatomy, neurophysiology and neuroendocrinology. This is a very sketchy collection of his laboratory research notes, reprints of a few publications, and some family photos.
Background
John Davis Green (1917-1964) born in Surrey, England, showed an early interest in science. He received his B.A. with honors from St. Johns College, Oxford University in 1939, and three years later a B.M. and B.Ch.(Oxon). He also earned M.A. and M.D. degrees from Oxford, and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons. In 1943 he became a Demonstrator in Anatomy at Cambridge University. In 1946 a fellowship in Anatomy brought Dr. Green to the United States at Wayne University, Detroit, MI, where he worked until 1952, winning a five-year Markle Scholarship in Medical Sciences during his stay. In 1952 Dr. Greene was recruited to the new UCLA Medical School as Associate Professor of Anatomy, and he remained at that institution until his untimely death in 1964.
