On This Day
Warren Green, South Dakota's 13th governor, was born today in 1869 in Wisconsin. His family emigrated to Dakota Territory and lived in Hamlin County, where Green farmed. He was elected to the Legislature in 1906, 1922 and 1924. Green became governor in 1930. He inherited a massive state debt (which he helped pare down through tax reform and budget reductions), drought, a grasshopper plague and crop failure. In 1932, he was defeated by Democrat Tom Berry. He returned to his farm near Hazel where he died in 1945.
