Cataloged
Biographical or historical data
George H. Wikoff, is listed in McElroy's City Directory of 1837 as a "gentleman" living at 75 N. 10th in Philadelphia. The matriculant list for the University of Pennsylvania has Wikoff attending the University from 1826-29, but he is not listed in the alumni catalogue as a graduate. He was hired to transcribe Nathaniel Chapman's lectures, perhaps by Chapman himself. No other information could be found on Wikoff.
