George D. Wick portrait
Description: Portrait of George D. Wick, ca. 1900-1909. Colonel George D. Wick, born June 24, 1854, in Youngstown, was a dominant figure in Youngstown's industrial, financial, and commercial development. Involved with the iron and steel industry, Wick, along with James A. Campbell, resigned from the Republic Iron and Steel Company in 1900, and they formed their own company, the Youngstown Iron Sheet and Tube Company. Wick played an active role in the rising company and served as its first president but after suffering health problems he was forced to take a leave of absence. Although he later returned to the company, Wick perished on the Titanic when it sank on April 15, 1912. View on Ohio Memory.
