John Cleve Green (April 14, 1800 – April 29, 1875) was a wealthy China trader. A Lawrenceville native, he attended Maidenhead Academy (now The Lawrenceville School) as a boy. He is considered a member of The Lawrenceville School's class of 1816. He was a great benefactor to the School and many members of the Green family are recognized as the "founders" of what is now known as The Lawrenceville School.
Detailed biographical sketches of John Cleve Green, Henry Woodhull Green, and other members of the Green Family can be found within the collection.
The collection is arranged according to the arrangment established by a previous archivist. All future accessions will be added to the end of the collection.
