About Dudley Green

Dudley Green taught Classics at Clitheroe Royal Grammer School for over 30 years, until his retirement in 1995. It was at this point that he started collecting the letters of the Reverend Patrick Bronte, in whom he has a particular interest arising from the fact that both his father and grandfather were clergymen. A life member of the Bronte Society, Dudley served on the committee from 1991 to 2003 and was Chairman from 1992 to 1995. He is also a life member of the Gaskell Society, of which he has been a committee member since 2000, and a life member of the Kilvert Society, which celebrates the writings of another famous clergyman, Francis Kilvert. He is the author of two books, Discovering Hadrian's Wall and, from Tempus Publishing, Because It's There: The Life of George Mallory.
