George A. Carroll was born in Limerick, Maine on March 3, 1919. There he grew up and graduated from high school in 1937. Due to the unemployment rates, he served 18 months at the Bridgton CC Camp as assistant leader. On April 12, 1941he was drafted by the U.S. Army and served seven years in North Africa and Italy during World War II. A severe injury in Italy sent him home to Maine, where, limited by his injuries, he bought and ran a dairy farm with the help of his sons. After 45 years, he passed it on to his youngest son. He served on the local school committee and sponsored a bill and then became a member of the 102nd Legislature for Maine. His other son, Arthur Carroll, is active in politics and worked for and with Muskie.
