Life

His parents were Assyrians from Urmia in north-west Persia. He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Chicago, where he received his doctorate in political science in 1958.

According to David A. Hamburg he was the among the first to lead behavioral scientists into studying the "very painful and dangerous" issues of nuclear crisis management during the Cold War era and to carry knowledge directly to policy leaders. George "focused a great deal of attention on reducing nuclear danger," he added. "I regard him as a truly great scholar and human being."
