TitleA Colorful Career Comes To a Close
AbstractProminent Kansas City sports figure Jerry Green died August 15, 2007, at the age of 77. He was "a flamboyant Kansas City businessman who owned banks and radio stations and tried to buy the Kansas City Royals in 1997." His career started by running his father's car dealership, Union Chevrolet. "His mother, Selma Green, later Selma Green Feld, was a well-known philanthropist who endowed the Carolyn Benton Cockefair Chair for Continuing Education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City." Green owned sports talk radio station WHB, auto dealerships Jerry Green Union Chevrolet and Broadway Ford, Indian Springs State Bank, and other banks which eventually became Union Bank, as well as a collection of sports cars. "Green once told a reporter that he was of establishment background but not an establishment person." Includes his picture.
