GREENE, Albert Gorton, lawyer, born in Providence, Rhode Island, 10 February, 1802" died in Cleveland, Ohio, 4 January 1868. He was graduated at Brown in 1820, studied law with John Whipple, and was admitted to the bar in 1823. He practiced in Providence, where, in 1832, he was elected clerk of the City council, and clerk of the municipal court, which office he held for twenty-five years. He was chosen judge of the municipal court in 1858, and after failing health compelled his resignation, in 1867, he resided with his daughter in Cleveland. He was actively connected with the educational interests of Rhode Island, and is said to have drafted the original school bill of the state. Judge Greene was associated in the founding of the Providence athenaeum, and was president of the Rhode Island historical society from 1854 till his death. He began a collection of American poetry, which passed into the hands of Caleb Fiske Harris, from whose estate it was purchased by Henry B. Anthony and bequeathed to Brown University. A catalogue of the collection has been prepared and published by John C. Stockbridge (Providence, 1886). Judge Greene published in 1833 a quarterly entitled the " Literary Journal," but discontinued it at the end of the year. He was the author of several well-known poems, including "Old Grimes," "The Militia Muster," "Adelheid," "The Baron's Last Banquet," and "Canonchet," published in Wilkins Updike's "History of the Episcopal Church in Narragansett" (New York, 1847).
