Henry George Jr. (November 3, 1862 – November 14, 1916) was a United States Representative from New York and the son of the American political economist Henry George (1839–1897).

Biography

George was born in Sacramento, California, and attended the schools there. At the age of sixteen, he started working for a printing office, where he was employed for one year. He moved with his parents to Brooklyn in 1880 and worked as a reporter for the Brooklyn Eagle in 1881. In 1884, he accompanied his father as his secretary on a lecture tour of Great Britain, at the close of which he joined the staff of the London Truth. He then returned to the United States and joined the staff of the North American Review. He was then managing editor of the Standard from 1887 to 1891, a correspondent in Washington, D.C. for a syndicate of western papers in 1891 and a correspondent in England for the same syndicate in 1892. In 1893, George became the managing editor of the Florida Citizen at Jacksonville, Florida. He returned to New York City in 1895. Upon the death of his father on October 29, 1897, he was nominated to succeed his father as the candidate of the Jefferson Democracy Party for mayor of New York City, but he was unsuccessful. He married Marie Morelle Hitch (born January 22, 1879 ) from Orleans Parish, Louisiana on December 2, 1897[1] and was a special correspondent in Japan in 1906. George was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-second and Sixty-third Congresses (March 4, 1911 – March 4, 1915). However, he was not a candidate for reelection in 1914. He engaged in literary pursuits until his death in Washington, D.C. and was interred in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn.[2]
