History

Named in 1880 by Commander L. A. Beardslee, U.S. Navy (USN), presumably for Captain William E. George, an English pilot who came to Alaska in 1868 and was master of some of the early passenger steamers and a frequent visitor to Juneau after the town was founded (DeArmond, 1957, p. 21). Name was published by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) in the 1883 Coast Pilot (p. 174).
