Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains the papers of Los Angeles art collectors Mildred Green (1890-1978) and her husband, attorney Lucius Peyton Green (1883-), and their family.
A native of Anaheim, California, Mildred Clara Browning Green (1890-1978) was born to Lionel Browning and Adele S. Rust on January 14, 1890. In 1915, she married Stanford University-educated attorney, Lucius Peyton Green (born 1883), son of Civil War-veteran Lucius Peyton Green, Sr. and Fannie DuBrutz. The Greens amassed a sizeable European art collection, portions of which were later bequeathed to the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery. Their art collections were featured in William R. Valentiner’s Catalog of the Collection of Mrs. Lucius Peyton Green (1956) and the Huntington Library’s Adele S. Browning Memorial Collection (1979). In addition to their involvement in the arts, the couple collected their families’ histories. Both accumulated genealogical information in the forms of local history books, newspaper clippings, photographs, and manuscripts compiled by relatives. Mildred Browning Green died in Los Angeles in November 1978; Lucius Peyton Green died the following month.
