About George Washington Berrian

George W. Berrian, of North Andover, Mass , was born in the city of New York, October 22, 1825. He received his early education in private schools in Tarrytown and Saybrook; entering the college of pharmacy of the City of New York, he graduated and received his diploma from that institution in 1855. He also pursued a course of medical study at the New York Medical College. In 1855 he was married to Ruth E. Weed, of North Andover; the same year he went into business as an apothecary, opening a store on Sixth avenue, New York. Retiring from business in 1860, he took up his residence in North Andover, Mass. Finding the New England climate unfavorable to his health, he spent his winters in the south, latterly in Florida. Stopping for a few days in Washington, D. C, on his way home from Florida, he was taken sick with pneumonia, attended with heart failure, of which he died July 4, 1898. Mr. Berrian was a man of most admirable qualities of mind and heart. A lover of good reading, he accumulated a large library made up of best books in general literature, history, science, and religion. He knew well the contents of the books that were on his shelves, and loved to have his friends, who were many, share his enjoyment with him. All who knew him will treasure his memory as a true friend, a good citizen, a pure and upright man. Deceased was a life member of our Association, and became a member in 1857, at Philadelphia, Pa.
