Albert C. Greene Papers

Administrative Information

ABOUT THE COLLECTION 
Acquisition:All of these records are believed to have arrived as part of the "Albert C. and Richard W. Greene Collection." The actual date of the accession is not known for sure, but the collection was in hand by the late 1940s. Therefore, the date of 1948 was assigned to the collection.
Processing information:This collection was originally processed by Harold Kemble circa 1987. Very little reprocessing was done. Harold Kemble organized the collection chronologically into two groups: letters and papers. This processing was basically kept intact with an explanation of "papers" in the scope and content section. The collection is now divided into seven series, though still organized chronologically within the series. Every person that wrote to Albert or that he wrote to has not been listed in the card catalogue. Only members of his family, individuals in our collections, and other prominent Rhode Islanders are listed in the subject headings. Transferred several correspondence and papers, 1816-1817, pertaining to the partnership of Greene & Dexter to the Richard W. Greene Papers (Mss 144). Transferred a 1783 ledger to the Richard W. Greene Family Papers (Mss 1043). This ledger had no name or place information. The year is too early to be connected with Albert C. Greene. Many legal files from the Greene Legal Papers (Mss 453) were transferred to this collection. All writs found in the Greene Legal Papers were transferred to the Richard W. Greene Papers, unless they specifically had Albert C. Greene's name somewhere on the writ. It is likely that some of the writs may be connected to cases of Albert C. Greene. The Greene Legal Papers contained an intermingling of the legal papers of Richard W. Greene and Albert C. Greene, therefore, some of these legal papers in either collection may pertain to the other individual. Great efforts have been made to properly distinguish among them, but the papers were at one point improperly interfiled.
