George William Johnson (November 10, 1869 – February 24, 1944) was a lawyer and Democratic politician who served as United States Representative from West Virginia.

Early life

He was born near Charles Town, West Virginia in Jefferson County on November 10, 1869. He attended the common schools and Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.



Johnson graduated from West Virginia University at Morgantown in 1894 and from the law department of the same university in 1896. He was admitted to the bar and practiced law in Martinsburg. He served as city attorney of Martinsburg and then moved to Parkersburg in 1900, continuing to practice law.

Johnson served as a member of the board of regents of the State Normal School from 1897 to 1900. He served as Referee in Bankruptcy for the United States District Court of West Virginia and general counsel to the West Virginia Public Service Commission. During this time he also grew fruit and raised stock.

He died in Martinsburg on February 24, 1944 and was buried in Edgehill Cemetery in Charles Town.
