Walter O. Green.

Walter O. Green, one of the progressive and representative young citizens of Union township, is the proprietor of a blacksmith shop at Zion and has built up an extensive enterprise in this connection.  His birth occurred in Union township, this county, on the 24th of March, 1888, and he is a son of Stephen Green, extended mention of whom is made on another page of this work.  He was reared to manhood under the parental roof and in pursuit of an education attended the district schools.  On attaining his majority he began learning the blacksmith's trade as an apprentice and subsequently conducted a shop on his father's farm for about two years.  He then spent two winters at work as a blacksmith in Orient and in the fall of 1913 erected a building and opened the shop which he has since conducted at Zion, enjoying an extensive and profitable patronage.  In February, 1914, he built another structure and in partnership with O. K. Cannon established a barber shop and a buying station for cream and farm produce, Mr. Cannon taking charge of these interests.  Later, however, Mr. Green acquired his partner's interest in the business, discontinued the cream and produce station and installed his brother, Sylvester S. Green, in the barber shop, the latter having  been in charge thereof to the present time.  Walter O. Green also owns an eighty-acre farm on section 5, Union township, which is being operated by one of his brothers.  He gives his political allegiance to the republican party, while his religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Christian church.  His business interests have been attended with gratifying success and he enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the enterprising and popular young native sons of Adair county.
