Born in 1913, George F. Earle grew up in New Bedford, Mass. He began oil painting at the age of 8 and attended Syracuse University where he started the University's first ski team. Earle spent a year painting in Mexico and then began work on his advanced degree in fine arts at Yale University. Enlisted the day after Pearl Harbor and found his way into the 10th Mountain Division, where he became a ski instructor at Camp Hale, Colo. Throughout the invasion and occupation of Kiska Island, as well as during his combat service in Italy, Earle continued to paint. After the war, he finished his M.A. at Yale, returned to Syracuse to coach skiing and to direct the largest ski school in the country at that time. Spent most of his career teaching design and art history.
