Meet the Author – David Greene

Image of Book Cover

David Greene is a former wool pool manager, shearer, and long-time Maryland Sheep Breeders Association member and officer. His book, The History of the Maryland Wool Pool”, documents not only the 60-year history of the pool itself, but of preliminary sheep and wool marketing organizations dating back to 1918 (when the first meeting of the Maryland Sheep Growers Association was held in Baltimore). There is also a section on the early history of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. In addition to the Author’s Tent, David will be available to sign books in the Greene’s Lamb booth in the Home Arts Building. His books will be for sale in the T-Shirt Building and Home Arts Building. All proceeds from sale of the book benefit the Maryland Sheep Breeders Association.
