July 1905
The death of George F. Durgin, for many years general manager of the Wm. B. Durgin Co., silversmiths, Concord, N. H., occurred on Saturday, May 27, following closely upon that of his father, Wm. B. Durgin, late president of the company, whose demise was reported in our June issue. The junior Mr. Durgin was cut down practically in the prime of life, as he had attained only his forty-seventh year. His death was the termination of a long illness, and it came after he had taken an unavailing voyage to the Mediterranean for recuperation. He was born in Concord, N. H., educated at the local public schools and at the Phillips Andover Academy. He became connected with his father's business originally as an apprentice, and passed through successive stages of service in order to familiarize himself with the details of the business. Eventually he was given an interest in the firm by his father, and entrusted with its general management, and when the business was incorporated in 1898 he also became one of its directors. In the latter part of 1904 his impaired health necessitated a relinquishment of active duties which was destined to be final, for his strength gradually ebbed away, until death terminated his connection with the firm to the growth of which he contributed so largely.
