George H. Edgley
I was born and raised in Washington State. Following graduation from high school,
I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served with the First Marine Division
in Korea during the Korean War. I advanced to the rank of Sergeant and
was trained in and assigned to Intelligence work. I was honorably discharged
after the end of the war, when my enlistment was up.
After my military service, I attended junior college, where
I obtained an Associate Degree in Engineering. I then attended
and graduated from the University of Washington with
Baccalaureate Degrees in Physics(BS) and in Mathematics(BA).
Employed by The Boeing Company as an Associate (Mid-Level) engineer,
I worked in a variety of positions, most notably in Operations Analysis
doing war gaming, research testing and writing for contract proposal teams
and writing test manuals for various products related to missile programs.
During this time, I was a candidate for the State Legislature,
but lost narrowly to the Governor's son. I then decided I was
not meant to be a politician. Later, I worked for the City of Seattle
in Personnel/Civil Service, where I wrote and administered original examinations
for employment testing of managers, engineers and skilled trades applicants
and performed job classification analyses for the same groups.
During my years in Washington State, I hunted deer and elk and fished
throughout the State and was involved in casual shooting sports,
which I continue to enjoy. I maintained an interest in military history,
primarily Civil War and World War II.
Because of my employment background with the City of Seattle,
I served on the Civil Service Commission for the Clallam
County, Washington, Sheriff's office for several years
following my retirement. I currently am living in Cottonwood,
Arizona, where my wife and I enjoy researching the
Native American culture and history of the Southwest.
