George Thomas Burns

Seeking artwork by George Thomas Burns from 1930s-40s. Contact us at:

We would also welcome a photo of Mr. Burns from later in his life.

BORN: 1911 (Bay View, WI?)

DIED: 2009, Milwaukee, WI

***Note: Have found two different sources- one says George Burns was born in Bay View, and the other says his family moved there when he was 10.

Regardless, Burns graduated Bay View High School in 1930 - his yearbook photo is on this page.

George Thomas Burns graduated from the Milwaukee State Teachers College in 1935  and received his master’s in art and education from Columbia University in New York in 1941.
