George Adams Richardson was born in Auburn, New York, the son of Frank W. and Charlotte Adams Richardson. His father, like his grandfather and his father before him, had been prominent furniture manufacturers in the city. George graduated from the Groton School, and from Yale University in 1910. Richardson served as a major in World War I and in the Mexican Border campaign. He was a colonel in World War II.
His niece recalled in 2011 that George had established a connection with the family of Marshall Field while at Yale. After service in World War I, he moved to Chicago as an executor of the Marshall Field Estate, becoming a trustee of the estate in 1922. In 1918 Richardson married Anne Camden Johnson Thompson (1888-1961), the first wife of Samuel F.B. Morse (1885-1969), the California developer of Pebble Beach. Richardson first came to the San Diego area in 1938, and in 1943 purchased the Rancho Santa Fe Inn which his family ran for the remainder of his life.
By his wife's first husband, he had three step children, Samuel F.B. Morse (1908-1956), John Boit Morse (1910-1988), and Nancy Morse Borland (1915-2005).
