Marshall Smith Green was a visionary inventor as well as a trained engineer.[1] His initial interests were in aircraft, proven by multiple wins and records as Canadian National model airplane champion three years in a row during the 1940s.[2] He was 15 years old on his first crown and a mere seventeen years old at his last.

In 1946, Green invented and handmade perhaps the first working radio control unit with Jack Luck, flying a model airplane successfully, using the RC for engine RPMs, rudder and stab.[3]

Moving on to sports cars, he first purchased an MGTC in the 1940s, which he drove all over the East coast of Canada and the U.S. Backed by the MG factory in England, by 1951 he had modified an MGTD with the help of the Italian mechanic Pennante who machined the first V-12 Ferrari engine for Enzo. The hotrod MGTD remained undefeated until the Mount Equinox hillclimb in Vermont, fall of 1951.[4]

Marshall Green’s 1250cc TD was defeated for the first time by a mediocre driver in a racing Glockler 1500cc Porsche. Green’s friend Briggs Cunningham convinced him to contact Ferry Porsche directly, and together, Porsche and Green, created one of the first 356 GT racing cars.[5] Green, always obsessed with weight reduction over an increase in engine size, had the 356 made with aluminum doors, hood, and engine lid. The special 1500cc engine had a one-off hand-ground camshaft making the car quicker in the ¼ mile drag then the much larger displacement Jaguars of the day.

Also in 1951 he started a sports car club (St. Lac) with Jack Luck in Kingston, Ontario that would later become the ruling body of all Canadian motorsport until 1988, Jack Luck’s masterful logo lasting through all the years.[6]

[7]Moving on to paper machines, Green had numerous patents building his prototype Verti-former for Black Clawson in Watertown, New York during the 1960s.[8] He made newsprint on this machine three times faster than any other paper machine in the world. For his success, he was fired.

Utilizing his knowledge of airplane wings, he also invented the foil for removing water from the slurry covered wire, which deleted the need for suction boxes from Fourdrinier paper machines. His many inventions continue working to this day.
