George Frederick Pearson was born in 1877 in Truro, Nova Scotia, the son of Julia Reading and the Hon. B.F. Pearson, a noted Halifax lawyer, publisher and financier. He graduated with his LLB from Dalhousie in 1900, the same year he was called to the Nova Scotia bar. In addition to his law practice, Pearson was Chairman of the Nova Scotia Housing Commission, Director of Maritime Telephone & Telegraph, and Honorary President of the Nova Scotia Good Roads Association. He was also Chair of Dalhousie's Board of Governors, a position from which he resigned after his failed campaign to oust Carleton Stanley from the presidency.
Pearson was married twice, first to Ethel Miller, with whom he had one daughter; later he married Agnes Crawford, with whom he had two children. He died in 1938.
