George, do rest in peace!
Let me add my story regarding George. I had been working in Ithaca for four years after undergraduate school in local media and advertising. Good job prospects in and around Ithaca were limited so I applied to the Cornell B-school. Despite fair board scores and undergraduate grades George recognized my skills and potential and gave me a one semester trial opportunity to enter the school full time. I did graduate with multiple job offers. George provided a wonderful boost that I will never forget, from a wonderful man.

I remember George as a "cool admissions guy". I remember especially his tinted glasses and smooth, knowledgeable style. In 1975 I had worked a couple of years as an engineer, but had been bitten by the bug of strategic planning. ...after working on a number of projects which didn't make a lot of sense to me. I thought I could do better. He spoke of graduates that had gone on to product and business planning, and that sounded great. I managed to follow the path George laid out in that interview. Although I didn't have much contact with him afterward, I certainly give him credit for validating and encouraging a career switch/enhancement. RIP George, you were a good man, and a great asset to Cornell.

It was June 1975, I was retiring from the Navy, had flown to Ithaca in a Navy Aircraft with a Cornellian, Navy friend who was anxious to complete his long absence from the Hotel School. He told me to check the "B" school regarding their health admin MBA and I walked in stone cold and was given to George to speak with. George noticed from my dress blue's that I was a Naval Aviator and we spent a very pleasant hour with coffee discussing the ins and outs of "Carrier" operations. He then pulled out a form, asked me for the "fee" and announced I was in the incoming class. This without boards, a bachelor's transcript, or anything else. I will never forget that it was George who gave me my shot at my second career. His trust that I would succeed helped me to transition to student, and civilian life. Not everybody would have done that, but that was the kind of man George was and continued to be. I am forever grateful. Rest in Peace, George.
