Biographical Note

Mary Carolyn Hollers George is a writer and architectural historian. A native of San Antonio, Texas, she was born on June 5, 1930, and attended Thomas Jefferson High School. She received a Bachelor's Degree in Art from Mary Baldwin College in Virginia in 1951 and a Master's Degree in Art History from the University of Texas at Austin in 1970. She is a member of the Texas Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians and has taught courses on the history of art and art appreciation at San Antonio College in the Alamo Community College District.

Ms. George is married to architect W. Eugene George, who has assisted her as photographer and designer for some of her books. With her previous husband Robert M.T. Jutson, she had two sons Robert M.T. Jutson, Jr. and Scott Hollers Jutson.

George's published works focus on architectural history in Texas especially in and around San Antonio and Mexico. These works include the book O'Neil Ford: Architect, a biography of the well-known San Antonio architect and conservationist, and Mary Bonner: Impressions of a Printmaker. She also completed two books about the architect Alfred Giles. Alfred Giles: An English Architect in Texas and Mexico was published in 1972 and The Architectural Legacy of Alfred Giles: Selected Restorations was published more recently in 2006.

Ms. George also conducted research concerning the Koehler Family, founders of the Pearl Brewery, in San Antonio and their home now called the Koehler Cultural Center as well as the Anglo-Texan Society. The Anglo-Texan Society was founded in London by men with Texas connections. Among the groups members were O'Neil Ford and Alfred Bossom, the architect who designed the Magnolia building in Dallas and several other buildings in Texas.
