GEORGE, WILLIAM REUBEN

Founder of the Junior Republic; b. West Dryden,

Nov. 12, 1896. Esther Ide Brewster; children: Eleanor
Miller, b. 1S9S, Esther Armington, b. 1904, Edith Van
Etten, b. June 7, 1908. Went to N. Y. City in 1880;
later became verv much interested in work for boys
and girls; in 1890 took a group of children to Free-
ville for the summer, and for five years thereafter
different groups were taken each summer for an out-
ing. In studying children, and the work being done
for them, came to the conclusion the giving the chil-
dren everything they needed, free, tended to increase
pauperism among them. While thinking over a rem-
edy for this conceived the idea of starting a junior
republic, modeled after the U. S. Gov't, and in 1895 put
his ideas into operation. The plan worked so well and
created so much interest that it was at once incor-
porated and placed on a permanent basis. The sum-
mer feature was abandoned and a permanent inst'n
established, which Is widely known as the George
Junior Republic; now devoting entire time to estab-
lishments of the Junior Republic System. Founder of
the Junior Municipality, which extends a measure of
self-gov't to all youth within a city between the ages
of 16 and 21. Author: The Junior Republic, collabora-
