The History of Fairmount Park

George B. Harrison, Jr.

George B. Harrison, Jr., was born at Glasgow, Mo., October 23, 1870.  His is a pioneer family, his grandfather, John Harrison, who is a native of Kentucky, having settled in Howard County in 1814.  There Mr. Harrison's father, George B. Harrison Sr., was born and reared.  Mr. Harrison spent all his earlier life in Glasgow, going to the public schools there and afterwards to Pritchett College, where the degree of A. B. was conferred upon him in 1887.  Mr. Harrison went into the banking business soon after his graduation from college in the employ of the Glasgow Savings Bank, rising from a clerkship until he was the bank's cashier.  This place he held for ten years.  He came to Kansas City in July, 1901, and he became assistant cashier of the New England National Bank.  January 1, 1902, he was made cashier of the bank.

     Since his local residence began, Mr. Harrison has become identified with many institutions of the town, notably the Kansas City Athletic Club, the Kansas City Club, and he also holds membership in the Knights of Pythias.  His affiliations in banking and business circles are extensive, being a member of the Missouri Bankers' Association, of which he has been first assistant secretary-treasurer and president (1900 to 1901).  He is also treasurer of the Trans-Mississippi Commercial Congress, and treasurer of the Commercial Club.

     Mr. Harrison was married in 1891 to Miss Ligon, of Texas.  They have two children, a boy and a girl.
