The Guardian Savings and Trust Company became the Guardian Trust Company in 1925.

HART, George F. (b. Dec. 25, 1872) from The Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago & New York, 1918 v. 1 pg. 185

George F. Hart. That George F. Hart is a very capable Cleveland business man his many friends and associates abundantly testify, and his position as one of the executive officers of the great Guardian Savings and Trust Company is one that makes further commentary on that subject superfluous. There has been nothing spectacular in Mr. Hart's career. It has consisted of a quiet and faithful performance of duty, beginning in a humble position, and is a record of service from boyhood to mature manhood in banking.

He was born at Allegan, Michigan, December 25, 1872, and he received his first instruction in that little city in the public schools. When he was eleven years of age his parents moved to LaPorte, Indiana, where he continued to attend public school until he was sixteen. At that early date in his career he found a position according with his experience and abilities in the bank of A. P. Andrew, Jr., and Son at LaPorte. Larger responsibilities were given him as he proved himself capable, and when he left the LaPorte Bank on February 1, 1900, he had been occupying the position of teller for some time.

From LaPorte Mr. Hart came to Cleveland, and his service with the Guardian Savings & Trust Company has been continuous since that date. He worked as clerk in different departments, in 1901 entering the trust department, was subsequently promoted to assistant treasurer, was then elected treasurer, and is now the second vice president. He has specialized in the handling of the trust department of this great bank, and nearly all of his seventeen years service has been in that department.

Mr. Hart is a member of the Cleveland Athletic Club, Hermit Club, City Club, Chamber of Commerce, and he is a republican and a member of the Episcopal Church. At LaPorte, Indiana, October 17, 1894, he married Miss Sarah Whiting. Their one child, Helen Cornelia, is a graduate of the Cleveland public schools and is now attending LaSalle Seminary at Auburndale, Massachusetts
