American writer: a memoirist, fiction writer, historian, poet, and influential book critic in Dallas, Texas. As a newspaper journalist, he had been a book critic and editor of the Editorial Page for the Dallas Times Herald when JKF was assassinated. Leaving full-time journalism in 1968, Greene went on to become a prolific author of books, notably on Texas lore and history. His notoriety led to stints in radio and TV as talk-show host. By the 1980s, his commentaries were being published by major media across the country. He had become a sought-after source for Texas history, antidotes, cultural perspective, facts, humor, books, and politics. When the 1984 Republican National Convention was held in Dallas, Greene granted sixty-three interviews about Texas topics to major media journalists. He died on 5 April 2002 in Salado, Texas.
Sy Scholfield quotes "A Personal Country" by A. C. Greene (University of North Texas Press, 1998), p. 104: "I was born at noon one Sunday in a thing called the Abilene Emergency Hospital."
