George B. Ogden, president and treasurer of the American Emblem Company of New Hartford, New York, was born at that place on September 17, 1891, the son of Frank C. and Clara (Babcock) Ogden, both of whom were descendants of old and well known families of Oneida county, his mother being a native of New Hartford. Frank C. Ogden, who died in 1910, was associated with the Ogden Grain Company of Utica for many years. The mother married again and is now Mrs. B. V. Putnam of Dolgeville, New York. Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Ogden: Elizabeth, now Mrs. W. A. Soper; George B., the subject of this sketch; and H. Bradley Ogden.

George B. Ogden was educated in Utica Academy and at Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, from which he was graduated in 1914, with the degree of Ph. B. He then entered the employ of the New Hartford Cotton Company as clerk and remained two years, then came to the American Emblem Company, his present firm.

On September 29, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, Mr. Ogden was united in marriage to Miss Mary Bryant, daughter of the late John J. and Matilda (Miller) Bryant, the former being a prominent grain man of Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Ogden are the parents of two children: Frank Clark and Judith Balentine Ogden.

Mr. Ogden entered the service during the World war in the adjutant general's department and was stationed at various camps. He was discharged at Fort Bliss, Texas, on March 31, 1919, as second lieutenant. He is a member of the Rotary, Players, University and Curling Clubs, all of Utica, and a trustee of the Presbyterian church in his home village of New Hartford. In politics he is an active republican and for diversion he enjoys athletics, curling and baseball.
