Thurston Greene

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that Thurston Greene ’29 has died at 101 at his Nantucket summer home. He was a long-time resident of Millbrook, New York.

A Harvard-trained lawyer, Greene was one of Thomas Dewey’s original anti-organized crime force, and the last of the group to die — they brought down “Lucky” Luciano amongst others. Greene practiced law until well into his 80s and published a volume on constitutional law at 82.

Rest in peace.
