Frank E. George
Nominee for recorder

Was born in Vermont Oct. 14, 1856, and came to Kane county with his parents when eight years old. He settled in Batavia thirty years ago and received his education at the West Side public schools, which he attended int he late 'sixties and early 'seventies. He was brought up in the Methodist church. he is a fine business man, and a clean-handed straight republican. In 1892 he was elected to the board of supervisors as assistant from Batavia, and a year later was made supervisor, which position he still holds, having been re-elected in 1895 by a magnificent majority. Since being on the board he has earned a reputation as a level-headed working member. He makes no oratorical pretensions, but is always abl t express himself with facility when occasion requires.

For several years past Mr.George has bene a member of the republican county central committee and has acted as its treasurer. He is a splendid organizer and is very popular.

He owns a comfortable home in East Batavia, where his four motherless children receive excellent care - for he is a fond, intelligent and thoughtful parent.
