George Evans Tener 1917-2003

The following was published in the Washington DC Post in May 2003:
George Evans Tener, Diplomat, Investment Officer
George Evans Tener, 85, a former diplomat and partner in a New York investment firm, died of cancer May 4, at home in Washington.

Mr. Tener was born in Newcastle, Pa. and graduated from Yale University. During World War II, he served in the Army in North Africa and Italy. After the war he was a diplomat, serving in Foreign Service assignments in Italy and the Phillipines.

He returned to the United States in 1954. He lived in Middleburg and commuted to New York, where he was a senior partner with J & W Seligman Co. Investments.

He had lived in Washington for the last 20 years.

He was a member and former vestryman at St. John's Spiscopal Church in Georgetown and a member of the Metropolitan Club and Diplomatic and Counsular Officers Retired.

His first wife, Patricia Buehner Tener, died in 1964.

(**The article went on to list his survivors - deleted here for purposes of their privacy.)

Additionally, I think - am pretty sure - that this is the George Tener who hosted the Tener Family Reunion that marked the 100th Anniversary of the family leaving Ireland. That gathering was memorialized in a news article - excerpts of which appear elsewhere in this site.
