Born 11/11/1924 in Whittier CA; parents: Seth W. & Alice M. (Stebbins) Green.
Whittier Union High School, 1942; Art Center School of Photography, 1943; Los Angeles City College, 1948.
Married Helen I. Silbert, who died in 1970.
U.S. Navy, 1943-1946.
Photographer, 1947-2001. Operator of photography studio in Los Angeles.
Became active in interplanetary movements in the 1950s. Professed to have engaged in 100 encounters or sightings with visitors from other planets. Editor, Flying Saucers International. Founded the California-based Amalgamated Flying Saucer Clubs of America, Inc. in 1957, approximately at the same time he announced his meeting with flying saucer crewmen from the hitherto unknown planet Korender, orbiting the triple star Alpha Centauri. Like George Adamski and most other contactees of the period, he said he was able to maintain continual telepathic links with the wise and helpful extraterrestrials he had met.
Candidate for US President in 1960 on the Outer Space Party. Based his political philosophy on "United World Universal Economics."
Candidate for U.S. Senate (D-CA) 1962; lost in the primary and later persisted in overstating his level of popular support.
In 1967 he published his only book, "Let's Face Facts about Flying Saucers."
Candidate for U.S. President in 1972 on the Universal Party ticket. Appeared on the ballot in Iowa.
Like most if not all of the 1950s contactees, Green was evidently far more interested in New Age/Theosophical topics such as reincarnation, channelling, Spiritualism and psychic phenomena than he was in being a prophet expounding wisdom supposedly acquired from friendly space-alien contacts. Also -- like most of the more obscure contactees -- he eventually dropped out of sight, moving to the vicinity of Yucca Valley, CA after his last run for president, and very seldom thereafter appearing in public until his death about three decades later.
Died 8 September, 2001, in Yucca Valley
