GEORGE W. HAMILTON
This admirable gentleman was desirous that the editors of the CRIMSON AND WHITE should give him a "puff" in their valuable book, and to oblige him they desire to make public a short synopsis of his life up to date.
George W. Hamilton was born on a farm in Berks county. He has a noble ancestry, Alexander Hamilton being his great-grand-grandfather's uncle's cousin. He came to Pottsville at an early age, but did nothing extraordinary until he entered the High School, where his star began to rise.
As a sprinter, he became famous while yet a Junior, and in his Middle year, he was sent to Philadelphia by the A. A. to take part in a relay race. Sorry to say our team lost, but "it was not his fault."
His excellent qualities as a foot ball player were not recognized until this last season. He distinguished himself by winning every game that was played, only the referee did not always agree to it.
In the recent meet of the A. A. he was the leading figure, and won several medals. With such a glowing past back of him, we predict for him a brilliant future.
