Biographical Sketch

George Renshaw Bean was an early pioneer settler, teacher, attorney, County Judge, and businessman of Lubbock, Texas. Born in Decatur, Texas, on April 28, 1874, he arrived in Lubbock in 1893 from Montague County following the cattle herds to the High Plains. He later became a school teacher, Superintendent of Lubbock schools (1899-1900), an attorney (1901-1962), and Lubbock County Judge (1902-1906). A law partnership was formed with E. L. Klett, and Bean also held extensive real estate interests in Lubbock, Gaines, and Montague counties. Bean retired in 1942, but remained active in civic affairs, and in 1956 began to actively work to preserve Lubbock County history through his involvement in the Lubbock County Historical Survey Committee. He married Nora Hunt in 1899 and they had seven children. Robert Bean, the eldest son, served as Lubbock County Judge (1928) and as the first District Judge (1950s). George Renshaw Bean died in 1962.
