George B. McCartee
In 1859, McCartee moved to Washington, D.C. to become private secretary to United States Secretary of the Treasury Howell Cobb. He was later superintendent of the Treasury Building. During the American Civil War, the Treasury Department sent him abroad to sell government bonds.
Following a Congressional investigation in 1868, Spencer M. Clark was forced to resign as Chief of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and McCartee was named Acting Chief. He became Chief of the Bureau in 1869, holding this office until 1876.
McCartee died in Salem, New York in 1903 at age 70.
