George A. Robbins was a well-known retired banker, prominent in the social and business life of this, his native city. Liberally educated, with artistic and refined tastes, and generous in his nature, he was a fair type of that class which, blessed with abundant means, leads quiet and unobtrusive lives, and by faithfulness in good works and intelligent interest in public affairs constitutes the most valuable body of our citizenship.
