expand icon Historical Note

Dr. George Phillips taught in the English department at San Diego State University from 1947-1973.  A scholar of 18th and 19th Century British literature, Phillips was recognized as the world's authority on the history and literature of chimney sweeps.  For over fifty years Phillips amassed a sizeable collection of books, prints, manuscripts, paintings, and memorabilia from all over New York and Europe.

Phillips also wrote a number of articles and books on chimney sweeps.  Perhaps one of his best known works was American Chimney Sweeps: An Historical Account of a Once Important Trade, which was illustrated by noted San Diego artist Everett Gee Jackson.
