(Fox) George; and grandson of Richard Samuel Henry and Catharine Pratt (Vallance) George. He was educated in the public schools and when seventeen years old went to work as a printer. He was also amanuensis to his father, copying by hand almost the entire book manuscript of "Progress and Poverty." He was a reporter on the Brooklyn Eagle in 1881, and became a staff editor and special correspondent at Washington and London, of New York and other newspapers.
