The Dottie Green Collection is part of the Kathleen Bertrand and Linda Lundin, Honoring Women in Sports Collection. It includes original content by Green while she was a player in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). The entire Dottie Green Collection is made up her scrapbooks that cover every year of the AAGPBL with the exception of the final two years, 1953 and 1954. Some of the scrapbooks are entirely made up of original photographs and some contain only news clippings. Seven of the ten scrapbooks are held in wooden covers, six with league depictions engraved on the cover and one with painting only on the cover. All the wooden covers were created by Green. Most of the scrapbooks focus on one year. Due to the different sizes of the scrapbooks, they are not all in chronological order within the collection box number scheme.

Dorothy “Dottie” Green, a native of Natick, MA, was born on April 30, 1921. She spent her high school years at Natick playing multiple sports and after graduation she played semipro softball for the Boston Olympets. Green was one of three Olympets recruited by a new league, the All-American Girls Softball League, along with Maddy English and Mary Pratt. Eventually the league settled on the name All American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) with the history of the league spanning the years of 1943-1954. Green was assigned to the Rockford Peaches in the league’s inaugural season in 1943.
