1891 Biography
GEORGE E. MCCANN was born in New Gloucester, October 18, 1865. He was educated at the Freeport High School and Maine Wesleyan Seminary at Readfield, graduating in the class of 1883. He read law with Frye, Cotton & White, and was admitted to the Androscoggin bar in April, 1888, and very soon after formed a copartnership with Hon. D. J. McGillicuddy, of Lewiston, which continued about two years, when that firm was dissolved and he opened an office in Auburn. Mr. McCann served in 1889 as clerk of the common council of Auburn. In 1890 he was elected councilman from ward four, and was chosen president of the board. He was elected city treasurer in 1891.
