Padraig Shea on The Boston Globe reports: He captured military bases in the Arctic and the safe landing of Apollo 13’s crew. Once, aided by an impolite gust of wind, he snapped a shot of Queen Elizabeth’s royal slip.
For 42 years, Mr. Green was a revered photographer and editor in the Associated Press bureau in Boston. He died Dec. 21 of complications of cancer and diabetes at Linden Ponds nursing homes in Hingham. He was 92.
