Memorable Manitobans: Katherine George

Dr. George, of the Department of Sociology at United College, was born in Seattle, Washington and was educated at the University of California, at both the Los Angeles and Berkeley campuses. Her doctorate is from the University of California at Berkeley. She taught at the University of Rochester and University of Pittsburgh before coming to Winnipeg in 1962. Among her writings are articles on religious history in various periodicals. Dr. George is the author of Wartime Shipyard. A Study in Social Disunity (1948) was excerpted at length in Class, Status and Power (1950). Her Protestant Mind of the English Reformation, published by Princeton University Press in 1961, is the definite work in its field. Her present work of the Mennonite ethic grew out of her reading of the complete works of Menno Simon. [1965]
