Biographical or historical data :

George E. Milne was born on October 15, 1900, the son of George B. and Caroline (Jones) Milne. His father was a founder of Boutwell, Milne and Varnum Quarry Company, now Rock of Ages, in Barre, Vermont. He graduated from Goddard Seminary in 1919 and from Yale University in 1924, with a BA in anthropology. In 1927 he received a MBA degree from Harvard Business School. He joined the board of directors of the Granite Savings Bank and Trust Company in 1927, and became its president in January 1956. He was appointed chairman of the board in 1973, a position he held until the time of his death on July 25, 1985.

Mr. Milne married Rachel Hollister on June 18, 1924. They had three children: Margaret E., John H., and George D. Milne. Mr. Milne was involved in many civic organizations in Barre and was remembered at the time of his death as a "civic-minded member of the community who never sought recognition for his many contributions to the city." In addition to his interest in photography, Mr. Milne also raised and bred champion beagles.
