Biographical Sketch

David P. Green is an orthopaedic surgeon and author residing in San Antonio, Texas. While teaching at the Univesity of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio during the 1970s, Green's address was on a street named Floyd Curl Drive. No one seemd to know the origin of the street name. Green became curious about the stories behind many of the street names in the city. His search broadened over time to include buildings, parks, and places of San Antonio. His research culminated in his book, Place Names of San Antonio.
