    Excerpt from Andrew Haswell Green: A Sketch

    Themistocles is quoted as saying: I know how to raise a small and inconsiderable city to glory and greatness. Seth Low, Mayor of New York when Mr. Green was killed, in announcing his death to the Board of Aldermen wrote: It may truthfully be said that to no one man who has labored in and for the city during the last fifty years is the city under greater and more lasting obligations than to Andrew H. Green. The city itself, in some of its most beautiful and enduring features, is the monument of his love; and the city may well cherish his honored name with the undying gratitude that is due to a citizen who has made it both a greater and a better city than it was.

    Andrew Haswell Green was born on Green Hill in Worcester, Massachusetts, October 6, 1820. He was a son of William Elijah Green and his third wife, Julia Plimpton. The father was born on Green Hill in 1777 and died in his eighty-ninth year,' in the room in which he was born. He was graduated from Brown University in 1798, studied law under Judge Edward Bangs of Worcester, became his partner and was afterwards connected in the practice of the law with Judge Bangs's son, Edward D. Bangs, for several years Secretary of State of Massachusetts. During the latter part of his life he withdrew from the practice of his profession and spent his time in the cultivation of his farm. He was, writes his son Andrew, ever the genial companion of his children. He was married four times.

    The only child by his first wife was William Nelson Green, who was Judge of the Police Court in Worcester, from its establishment in 1848 to the time of its abolition, twenty years after. The only child by the second wife was Lucy Merriam Green, who, with her younger sister Mary, kept a well-known and favorite school for young ladies, for many years, at N o. 1 Fifth avenue, New York City. These ladies were very much indebted to Andrew H. Green. He always remained unmarried, and made his sisters' house his home while they conducted their school, and looked carefully after the business and financial interests of the institution.
