Biographical Note:

Joseph Warren Greene, Junior was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1875 and moved to Bloomfield, New Jersey in 1934.  He attended Yale University and graduated in 1899.  Joseph Warren Greene, Junior also graduated from New York Law School and later went on to practice law in New York City.

Mr. Greene was a member of the New Jersey Society of Colonial Wars and also joined The New Jersey Historical Society in October of 1929.   He was prolific historical researcher and writer.

Mr. Greene retired from his law practice in 1924 and proceeded to write and research New Jersey history.  He died at the age of 63 on June 13, 1939.

Provenance Note:

This collection was donated to The New Jersey Historical society in 1939 after the death of Mr. Joseph Warren Greene, Junior, a member of the Society since 1929.

Scope and Content Note:

This collection, ca. 1930-1939, consists of a wide array of topical information about New Jersey.  Authored by the historical researcher and writer, Joseph Warren Greene, Junior, these papers provide a personal view about many “current” historical events and subjects in New Jersey.

These papers were primarily written after Mr. Greene’s retirement from his legal practice in New York City.  This collection can be loosely divided into five categories of topics; notes on cities, summer resorts in New Jersey, New Jersey transportation, people in New Jersey, and miscellaneous history and facts dealing with New Jersey.  While this voluminous collection is not divided into series, the folders do follow a basic order that flows by subject, with each alphabetized accordingly.  While the individual folders do not contain the dates that their contents were written, the collection was written during ca. 1930-1939 and contains information dating as far back as 1736.
