Mr. George E. Maltby, our President, is the second child of Lucius and Sarah J. Parks Maltby. He was born February 18th. 1830, in Fair Haven (now a part of New Haven,) Connecticut. As a boy Mr. Maltby lived at home, going to school and helping his father with the farm. Later he became clerk in Dr. Parker's drug store, being at the time eighteen years of age. Three years later Mr. Maltby went into the drug business for himself. In May, 1852, he married Elizabeth Broughton Maguire. They had two children. Edward Parks, and Mary Louise, Maltby. Shortly after the above children were born the war broke out and Mr. Maltby disposed of his drug business and went South where for some time he supplied General Grant's army with provisions. Mr. Maltby established an oyster business in Norfolk, Virginia, and was the first to ship opened oysters in bulk to New York; for a long time averaging five hundred gallons a day. In 1864 Mr. Maltby lost his wife and for seven years was a widower. In 1871 he married Ruth Atwater Boswick, and to them were born Margaret Atwater, George Erastus and Lucius Upson, Maltby. In 1878 Mr. Maltby and his family left Virginia and went to New York to live, where the northern branch of the oyster business was supervised by him. Mrs. Maltby died in May, 1898, and soon after Mr. Maltby gave up active business and now divides his time between his older daughter, Mrs. Frederick S. Smith of Chester, Connecticut, and his younger daughter, Mrs. William M. Bernard of New York City.
