Raised by a socialist father, Green worked in the San Francisco shipyards during WWII and both experiences inspired his lifelong love of labor history. He influenced countless oral historians and the American Folklife Center houses the Veterans History Project and StoryCorps collections among much much more. He also wrote Tin Men, a book documenting folk art robot-like figures crafted out of found metal.
