George Bannerman Dealey
Birth: Sep. 18, 1859
Manchester, England
Death: Feb. 26, 1946
Dallas
Texas, USA

Businessman. In 1870, his family immigrated to America and settled in Texas. He took evening classes at the Island City Business College and rose steadily as traveling news correspondent. Relocating to Dallas, he became a fixture at the The Dallas Morning News, the paper's manager in 1895, a board member in 1902, vice president-general manager of the corporation in 1906 and president in 1919. Determined to make Dallas a sound media and for businesses, he refused advertising that he considered dishonest or immoral. He founded an early newspaper-owned radio station WFAA, in 1922, bought the Dallas Morning News in 1926, plus owned the G. B. Dealey Land Company and the West Commerce Realty Company. He died at his home in Dallas, Texas, of a coronary occlusion at age 86. Dealey Plaza Dallas, Texas, built in 1934, was named for him and is the place where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
