Abstract:

Papers of Greene, a Milwaukee druggist, relating to his hobby, the collection of fossils and minerals. Greene acquired specimens through exploration of Wisconsin quarries, through exchanges with collectors and paleontologists in other states, and through purchases from individuals and from scientific supply companies.

After his death the collection of specimens was given to Milwaukee-Downer College and later moved to the possession of Lawrence University.

Greene's correspondence concerns the location, identification, and acquisition of his fossils and minerals. Among his notable correspondents were Thomas Chrowder Chamberlin, Philo R. Hoy, James Hall, Charles Wachsmuth, and Robert P. Whitfield. One folder of letters, 1884-1891, concerns the collections of the Milwaukee Public Museum, of which Greene was a trustee. Four volumes include catalogues of his collection, an account book recording purchases of fossils, and a notebook listing the sources from which he obtained mineral specimens.
