George Richard Mann was born in Syracuse, Indiana on July 2, 1856. George got into architecture after getting some encouragement from an uncle and becoming employed with his neighbor W.H. Brown, who worked in architecture. After being employed for two years, Brown encouraged George to apply to MIT who then graduated in 1876. During his career, George has designed many landmark structures within the Little Rock area including the Southern Trust Building, the Bank of Commerce, the State Bank Building (later called the Boyle Building) and some outside of that area including the Commerce National Back and Youree Hotel in Shreveport, Louisiana. George Mann passed away in his home in little Rock on March 20, 1939.
