George Miller Bunting (November 12,1891 - _____ ), son of Joseph and Elizabeth Spencer (Miller) Bunting, was born July 28, 1856, in Darby, a locality wherein his ancestors have been prominent for more than two centuries. He was educated at private schools in Darby, and graduated from Swarthmore College, when he embarked in the lumber business in Chester, in association with his uncle, David Sellers Bunting.

The American Pipe Manufacturing Company was organized in 1886. Mr. Bunting was among the first subscribers to the stock of the corporation, of which he is now vice-president and treasurer and a member of the board of directors. As the output and business of the company increased enormously, Mr. Bunting was compelled to withdraw from the lumber trade and devote his time to the affairs of the pipe manufacturing business, as well as that of many corporations in which he is a director, and in several of which he holds official positions.
