Henry Green underwent his last operation, one that amputated his left thumb and removed glands in his chest and arm. The operation was also his fifth this year.
Put into context
In a curious coincidence, John Bauer's last operation also removed glands from his chest. At the time, the Courant article implied that the removal of the glands hastened Bauer's death.
