The Henry Dart Greene Papers contains photographs, motion picture
films and a limited amount of personal and business papers. The photographs date from 1914 to the late 1960s, and are a mix
of personal and professional subjects. Greene's years at the University of California, Berkeley and photographs of his wife
Ruth Haight Greene's childhood in Sacramento are the earliest photographs in the collection. The collection includes
photographs from Argentina, where Greene worked with the Argentine Fruit Distributors from 1928 to 1931 and from his public
relations work with the American Fruit and Produce Auction Association (AFPAA) from 1933 to 1941. Photographs from Greene's
other professional careers are also included. The collection contains fifty-four 16 mm films dating from the 1930s to the
1960s which include two films made for the Feather River Project Association. While Greene's personal and business papers
not a significant portion of the collection there is a substantive collection of personal letters from Greene and his wife
their family members between 1928 and 1935. Henry Dart Greene passed away in 1978.
Henry Dart Greene (1900-1978) was born on September 20, 1900 in Pasadena, California. He was the son of noted Architect
Henry Mather Greene. Henry Dart Greene's professional life spanned several careers: he was the Executive Manager of the
Feather River Project Association; conducted public relations campaigns for the American Fruit and Produce Auction
Association; ran his own film production company; and tried his hand at ranching. After initial studies in architecture at
Throop College (later California Institute of Technology), Greene enrolled in the University of California, Berkeley in 1919
and graduated in 1923 with a degree in Agriculture. After graduation, Greene worked for the Federal-State Shipping Point
Inspection Service, part of the California State and US Department of Agriculture. Greene was stationed in both Northern and
Southern California between 1923 and 1928. In 1924, while in the Sacramento region, Greene met Ruth Haight (1907-2012); they
were married on June 29th, 1926.
