Henry George Portrait

Henry George, a journalist and self-taught political economist, was born September 2, 1839 at 413 South 10th Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He died on October 29, 1897 in New York City during his second campaign for the office of Mayor. His ideas and writings inspired an international social movement of enormous importance to secure true liberty and equality of opportunity for all by permanently ending all forms of monopoly — most importantly, that of land rent monopoly. The Henry George School of Social Science was established in New York City in 1932 to make sure the truths revealed in Henry George’s writings remain part of the public dialog.
