Hide Profile

George W. Childs (1829-1894) was the founder and editor of the Philadelphia Public Ledger, a noted philanthropist, and a longtime friend of Anthony J. Drexel. Born in Baltimore, he moved to Philadelphia to work for a bookseller at age fourteen and soon went into business for himself at the age of eighteen. In 1849, he became a partner in the publishing firm of R. E. Petersen & Company, and in 1860 he formed a partnership with the influential publisher J. P. Lippincott. In 1864, he purchased the Philadelphia Public Ledger, in which Anthony J. Drexel would become a silent business partner. Childs was influential in encouraging Drexel to establish a school for the education of men and women, and he served on the institute's board of trustees from the school's founding until his death. After his death, ownership of the Ledger and of Childs's property passed to Drexel's son, George W. Childs Drexel.

George William Childs was born in Baltimore; after a brief stint in the navy, he moved to Philadelphia at the age of fourteen, having no money, no family, and no job. Intelligent and hard working, with a good business sense, he found success, opening his own business at the age of eighteen. He then joined the publishing firm of R.E. Peterson, later becoming a partner; in 1864, he bought the Philadelphia Public Ledger, and under his guidance the newspaper became a profitable and prestigious venture, partially due to Childs' fair and progressive labor policies. Childs was also a philanthropist and collector.
