ed and graduated from Draughan’s Business School in San Antonio. He was hired by Mr. Ernest Sipple to work in his new Edison Phonograph Store to sell radios. The sales experience stood him well, but times were hard and business was not good, so George applied for a job as a radio operator and worked for a company who operated a fleet of ocean-going tugs—hauling barges of oil from Port Arthur to Miami, Florida. After experiencing several near hurricanes, he decided to return to New Braunfels and went to work for Mr. Sipple again. Shortly thereafter he was approached by a supervisor of die Alamo Life Insurance Co. of San Antonio to come to work for diem. He accepted and then took many home courses of study in Life Underwriting and Salesmanship. He opened his own agency—George E. Nowotny and Associates. In 1954 he became the first Chartered Life Underwriter in New Braunfels. Over the years he represented many well known companies until his retirement in 1971. He was known as a record keeper and a record breaker in the insurance business for his production record. On February 9, 1929, George married Margaret Voigt They have two sons, both graduating with high honors from the University of Texas, George, Jr. and Robert Allen. Over the years George was active in many civic organizations. For many years he was on the church council of the First Protestant Ouch. He received die Silver Beaver Award for his work with the Alamo Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. For his diligent work with the Chamber of Commerce he was awarded the Hall of Honor
Award in 1972. He served on the board of trustees for the local Elks Lodge #2279 for several years. He belonged to the Germania Farmer Verein and was a life member of the Mission Valley Bowling Club and the New Braunfels Schuetzen Verein.
