SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.
Tuesday, April 26, 1938.
Present: The CHIEF JUSTICE, MR. JUSTICE MCREYNOLDS, MR. JUSTICE BRANDEIS, MR. JUSTICE BUTLER, MR. JUSTICE STONE, MR. JUSTICE ROBERTS, MR. JUSTICE BLACK, MR. JUSTICE REED.
The CHIEF JUSTICE said:
"It is my sad duty to announce that Mr. Frank K. Green, the Marshal of the Court, died this morning. His life was spent in the service of the Court. He entered that service as a page boy over 46 years ago. Ten years later, in 1901, he became Librarian and, soon after, crier. He was appointed Marshal in 1915 and for over 23 years has acted in that capacity. Throughout this long period he has served the Court with the utmost fidelity, bringing to the discharge of his duties not only the advantages of his ability and thorough acquaintance with the work of the Court but an unfailing tact and kindliness which won the esteem of those who have been brought into contact with his office. His name belongs in the honor roll of those who have given themselves through long years to the service of the Court with complete devotion to its interests. As a token of our respect for his memory, we shall do nothing today but hear motions and finish the cause on argument, and we shall then adjourn until tomorrow morning."
Mr. Green was born, October 21, 1876, at "Forrest Hill," the home of his father, George Forrest Green, in the District of Columbia. This was part of a place near Georgetown, called Rosedale, which is said to have been purchased by his great-grandfather, Uriah Forrest, in 1790. He received his general schooling in Georgetown and a legal degree from the law school of Georgetown University. Funeral services were held at Holy Trinity Church on Thursday, April 28, 1938, and interment was in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Washington, D. C., on the same day.-REPORTER.
