DUFF GREEN

Printer of the original edition of the Executive Proceedings of the Senate (the appropriate part of which is included as a supplement in this volume)

Duff Green was born in Woodford County, Kentucky, in 1791. He prospered as a land speculator, merchant, and lawyer in Missouri. In 1825 he moved to Washington and purchased and edited the United States Telegraph.

In 1828 he was designated to print the Journal of the Executive Proceedings of the Senate "from the Commencement of the First, to the termination of the Nineteenth Congress."

Duff Green wielded great influence in Democratic circles, and became a member of Andrew Jackson's "Kitchen Cabinet." He supported J. C. Calhoun in his split with Jackson; in 1832 he backed Henry Clay and thereafter stood with the Whigs. He supported the Confederacy in the Civil War, and in the post-bellum years he strove strenuously to raise capital for the revival of the South's economy. He died in Georgia in 1875.
