M.C. GEORGE. – M.C. George is the third son of Presley and Mahala George. He is a gentleman of brisk mental qualities and great force, with refined popular attainments, and an honorable reputation that extends to every corner of Oregon. He was born in Noble county, Ohio, May 13, 1849. He received his education in our own state, at the Santiam Academy and at the Willamette University. He began independent life as principal of the public schools of Albany, and subsequently of the Academy at Jefferson. He was also engaged for a time in journalistic employment; but choosing the legal profession as a vocation best suited to his tastes, and as leading into the fields in which he desired to operate, he studied law, and was admitted to the bar as an attorney in 1875. He was early brought into political prominence and was elected state senator from Multnomah county in 1876, serving four years. In 1886 he was elected representative in Congress from Oregon, and was re-elected in 1882.

In 1885 he was chosen professor of medical jurisprudence in the medical college of Willamette University, and still retains this position. He was elected March 11, 1889, for the term of five years, a member of the board of directors of the public schools of Portland, and is now engaged in the practice of law in Portland, Oregon.
