George William Livingston, a son of Louis and Catherine Rupp Loewenstein, was born in Baltimore City. He was the husband of Ella Clampitt Livingston. His father, Louis Loewenstein, had been the owner of a slate roofing business. After his father's death in 1905, George William Loewenstein took over the management of the firm. In 1916 George William Loewenstein applied to the Baltimore County Circuit Court to have his surname changed to Livingston. Therefore, on the April 22, 1916, his surname, and the surname of his descendants, was changed from Loewenstein to Livingston. George William Livingston was an active member of the Masons in Maryland, and held a great number of positions within that organization. He was Senior Grand Warden in 1916, Deputy Grand Master from 1920 to 1924 and again for 1930 and 1931. He was on the board of managers from 1921 to 1933, and was Grand Lecturer in 1924 and 1925. He was Grand Master of the Maryland Masons for three years, being elected in 1932, 1933, and 1934. He also served on the Board of Trustees of the Masonic Home. He died on October 16, 1937, at 2 p.m., after an illness of several months. In an address given after G.W. Livingston's death, a fellow Mason described him as "blunt and times, and always outright in action and forthright in speech." He continued by saying that "one had to go beyond the outer man and discover by cultivation beneath a harsh exterior a warmth of heart and sincerity of purpose which ultimately bound all who really knew him to an allegiance like hoops of steel. A closer association as we were thrown together in Masonic work wholly changed my perception of this oak-like man. More and more there was revealed to me the warmth of his rugged nature, the tenderness of his heart, the genuine love he entertained for his Brethren." George W. Livingston's funeral was held from his home, and he was buried at Loudon Park Cemetery, in Baltimore.
