Oscar was the youngest of two sons born to Heinrich & Anna (Pfeiffer) Görg, who had emigrated separately from Germany to the United States in the 1880s.

Oscar lived with his family; first in Brooklyn, and later in Queens, in New York City.

When he was a young man Oscar and his brother had a double date with the showgirl Mae West and a friend. It is not known which of the brothers was May's date.

In 1914, he entered the Freshman Class at Dartmouth College in Hanover New Hampshire. Upon the entry of the United States into World War I, he left Dartmouth College and enlisted June 3, 1917 with the "Dartmouth Unit" as a private in the Ambulance Corps Regiment of the US Army where he served as an ambulance driver until his father's death in July 1917. Both his father and brother had died in 1917. He was honorably discharged on August 8, 1917 to care for his mother as her only living son.

Oscar and Helen had two children; Helen Jean (1925-2012) and Oscar Robert, born in 1936.

Oscar held various positions in the Traffic Department of the Telephone Company and in 1943 was appointed as Force Studies Supervisor. He held this positon until he retired in 1951 due to illness.
