Strangers to Us All Lawyers and Poetry

George Grant Witty

(1862- )

George Witty was born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky on January 23, 1862. "Although admitted to the bar in 1885, Mr. Witty has never been actively engaged in the practice of law. He has taken a prominent part in politics for many years, and is regarded as one of the leading republicans of western Kentucky. His poems have appeared in the local press from time to time . . . . He is now employed in teaching, and resides with his wife in Milburn, in his native state." [Thos. W. Herringshaw, Local and National Poets of America 156 (Chicago: American Publishers' Association, 1890]
