After the firm sold, Greenberg pledged $200 a month for six years to each of the company’s 27 developmentally disabled employees.
Greenberg considered it “one of the major insults of my life” that neither of his hometown newspapers — The Oklahoman and The New York Times — printed a letter he wrote proposing a new method of determining a quarterback’s responsibility for interceptions.
Greenberg published the letter in full in his last book. The Oklahoman printed the letter in 2010.
Into his 80s, Greenberg continued to work at JPMorgan — “but just five days a week,” played high-stakes bridge, performed sleight of hand on request, hunted and fished regularly and still found time to return to Oklahoma City from time to time.
More than six decades after leaving Oklahoma City, he said, “it’s always fun coming home.”
