 In Green Hills of Africa Hemingway has a  discussion with another 
gentleman discussing who they thought were the finest writers of the
time. I found it curious that during the discussion Hemingway never
mentions Fitzgerald. I was just wondering if this was deliberate. Any
information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Who were the writers? Whenever Hemingway mentioned the great writers he generally mentioned dead ones. But...

Green Hills was written in 1935 so all that he could rate Fitzgerald on were The Beautiful and the Damned (1922) , Gatsby (1925) and maybe Tender is the Night (1934), along with a lot of short stories which Hemingway didn't think were serious fiction since Fitzgerald contracted to write them. And IIRC none of Fitzgerald's books sold a lot of copies in his lifetime and there was a time when he was angry at Schribners and Max Perkins because hisbooks were allowed to go out of print.

The impression you get after reading about Fitzgerald's life is that he might have been forgotten, except for his coinage of "The Jazz Age," if it were not for his biographer Arthur Mizner after Fitzgerlad's death.
