            Born on August 7, 1913, at Meadville, Pennsylvania, E. L. Green graduated from Allegheny College in 1935. He attended Brown University for his Sc.M. and Ph.D. in genetics and statistics, and The University of Chicago for a post-doctoral fellowship with Sewall Wright. In 1940 he married Margaret Creighton, Ph.D., a scientist who would become known for her research in mutant genetics and development of the gene linkage map. For two years Green held a teaching position at Ohio State University before becoming Chief of the Department of Statistics at the School of Aviation Medicine at Randolph Field in San Antonio. After World War II he returned to Ohio State as a full professor of zoology, and later worked for the Atomic Energy Commission’s Division of Biology and Medicine, among other things studying the effects of radiation in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The study of radiation genetics (quantitative genetics) remained his lifetime field. The author of over 59 scientific papers, Green edited the second edition of Biology of the Laboratory Mouse, the standard reference in murine biology.

            In 1956, Green was appointed Director of The Roscoe B. Jackson Memorial Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. He continued his research on the effects of gonadal radiation on hereditary fitness, and served on committees at the National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, National Bureau of Standards, National Research Council, and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. After retiring as director of The Jackson Laboratory in 1975, Green taught statistics and genetics at The College of the Atlantic. In 1981, Macmillan Press published his Genetics and Probability in Animal Breeding Experiments.

            As the second director of The Jackson Laboratory, Earl Green institutionalized a rigorous organizational structure within both the scientific and administrative staffs. His Manual of Policies and Procedures  still regulates many of the Laboratory’s internal functions. He was particularly interested in expanding educational opportunities for students and new scientists; he was an expert in statistical analysis, and long after his retirement continued to be consulted by the staff; he instituted the Animal Health Program along with the expanded mouse production facilities; and his computer science program, established in 1960, foreshadowed today’s enormously significant emphasis on bioinformatics. Not the least of Earl Green’s contributions to the Jackson Laboratory and its staff was his indefatigable organization of social events. From name tags to practical jokes he enjoyed both the process of organizing a party and the event, and felt they were an essential part of the institutional management. He knew all the staff, the employees and their families, and he never forgot a name.

Scope and Content:

            The collection is extraordinarily incomplete. It has been gathered from other parts of the institution’s collections, and reflects only minimally on Earl Green’s scientific work and administrative accomplishments at The Jackson Laboratory. The collection of essays which he wrote between 1978 and 1994 (Box 23.3), and his five volume autobiography called Memoirs of a Mouse Breeder  ( in the Secure File Cabinet), both written after his retirement as Director of the Laboratory, probably contribute the best understanding of both his diverse interests and his methodical approach to everything in life. Three boxes of collected reprints reflect his passionate interest in statistical analysis and lattice matrix theory. The audio tapes are of poor quality, but contain Earl Green’s perspectives on the growth and direction of The Jackson Laboratory during his directorship, as well as some reflections on his life and work. The papers Margaret Creighton Green (1914-1995) are also included in the inventory. The Photograph Collection of The Jackson Laboratory contains both official portraits and other images of Earl and Margaret Green, 

Addendum: A collection of four personal photograph albums belonging to Earl and Margaret Green was given to TJL by Thomas Roderick in 1998, as well as a tribute album put together by Alan Russell  at the time of the Greens’ retirement.
