expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Sarah Jane Laschinger Greene (11 January 1929-2 August 2016) was a white journalist and community booster based in Gilmer, Tex. Greene studied journalism at Stephens College in Columbia, Mo. and the University of Texas before joining the Dallas Morning News in 1949, where she specialized in education reporting. She married Ray H. Greene, a reporter for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, before moving back to Gilmer in 1953 to work for the Gilmer Mirror newspaper. Greene’s grandfather, George Tucker, purchased the Gilmer Mirror in 1915, and it has remained in the family through four generations. She held many positions within her field, including serving as the president of the North and East Texas Press Association, 1989-1990, and as president of the Texas Press Association, 1996-1997. For her work, Greene received the Anson Jones Award of the Texas Medical Association, the Texas Press Association’s Golden 50 Award, the National Newspaper Association’s Emma C. McKinney Award, and she was the first woman inducted into the Texas Newspaper Hall of Fame.

Greene held numerous philanthropic and leadership positions in her community, including stints with the Texas Historical Association, East Texas Historical Association, Texas Commission on the Arts, East Texas Chamber of Commerce, East Texas Arts Council, East Texas Council on Alcoholism, and the Texas Folklore Society. She was a trustee of the Baylor Medical Center in Gilmer, a board member of the Gilmer National Bank, and a charter member of the Historic Upshur Museum.

Processing Information

Initial summary description was created in December 2017 to provide information about unprocessed materials in Wilson Special Collections Library.

Encoded by: Laura Smith

Revisions by: Nancy Kaiser, Jodi Berkowitz, Patrick Cullom, Anne Wells, November 2018

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine ethnic identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual’s preference for ethnicity to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at wilsonlibrary@email.unc.edu.
