COL. EDWARD HOWLAND ROBINSON GREEN 

   Eric P. Newman writes: "Col. Green was such an unusual 
   character that I have to comment that I met him when I was a 
   student at M.I.T. about 1931.  Members of our class were 
   invited to go down to his estate in Round Hill, Massachusetts 
   where he had one of the very few short wave radio stations. 
   When a member of the Adm. Richard Byrd Antarctic Expedition 
   got appendicitis down there and had to be operated upon at 
   40 degrees below zero our class manned Greene's radio 
   station 24 hours a day because the ability to reach Antarctica 
   was only about 20% of the time due to static. We were to 
   gather and relay information for the needed surgery. Ether was 
   used after putting out the oil fueled fire used in their heating 
   equipment. The patient recovered.  Little did I know that 
   about 10 years later I would be acquiring much of his American 
   coin and paper money collection.  I wish I could thank him for 
   helping to make my life so exciting."
