Richard Greene: Distinguished Tax Attorney, Estate Planner, and Leader in the Arts, Philanthropic, and University Communities
Conducted by Lisa Rubens in 2012, Regional Oral History Office, The Bancroft Library, University of
California, Berkeley, 2013.
From explaining complex tax policy to advising rock impresario Bill Graham, from serving as President of the Board of Trustees of San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art to becoming a self-proclaimed sports nut who uses his bargaining skills to get front row seats at Olympiads and Super Bowls, Green's career encompasses a wide range of local, regional and national history of, business, philanthropy, arts, and culture and the practice of law. This oral history provides compelling insights into the art of working with forceful personalities, reconciling competing interests, and making deals.
