Biographical/Historical Note

George Horace Lorimer (1869-1937), editor and author, was born October 6, 1869 in Louisville, Kentucky to the Reverend George Claude Lorimer (1838-1904) and Arabella Burford Lorimer (1839-1912). His father was a Baptist minister who held pastorates in Chicago, Boston and New York City. George Horace Lorimer began working at Armour & Co. meatpacking house because of encouragement from P. D. Armour, one of his father's friends. He left that job to attend Colby College in Maine. After a year at Colby, he worked for the Boston post. In 1898 he accepted a job at the Saturday Evening Post from the owner, Cyrus Curtis. A year later he was the editor and remained so until his retirement in 1936. His lifelong interests were the West, especially the Grand Canyon; conservation; and American antiques. He was the author of Letters from a self-made merchant to his son (1902), Old Gorgon Graham (1904), False gods (1906), and Jack Spurlock (1908). On June 6, 1892, he married Alma Viola Ennis (1870-1941), youngest daughter of Judge Alfred Ennis of Chicago. They had five children: Horace (1894-1896), Belle (1898-1908), Graeme Ennis (1903-?), George Burford (1908-1952), and Georgia Belle (1909-?). In addition to their home, Belgraeme, in Wyncote, Pennsylvania, they also owned King's Oak Farm six miles away.
