After graduation he did Army service, then joined the U.S. Forest Service and was a smokejumper before earning a law degree at UVA in 1957. He practiced law chiefly at Dunnington Barthalow & Miller. 

From his connections, personal or in law practice, George worked as a volunteer chairman, officer, or counsel for a range of organizations, including the Voltaire Society, National Park Foundation, Scenic Hudson, ASPCA, Explorers Club, US Tennis Association, Lenox Hill Hospital, US Olympic Committee, US Olympic Foundation, UN Subcommittee on Protection of Minorities, UN Human Rights Commission, and the International Court of Arbitration for Sports.
