Easby was a multi-talented person, from being a Hollywood actor/producer to a cartoonist after World War 2, and from serving the government as a U.S. State Department employee for twenty-five years to being a radio talk host. He was also a major art/antique collector, who inherited more than 100,000 antiques and personal items, many of which had been in his family for centuries. His collection includes items belonging to Gen. George Gordon Meade, a chair and other high valued items belonging to Napoleon Bonaparte as well as jewelry belonging to Joséphine de Beauharnais. Many pieces from his collection have been loaned to the White House and U.S. State Department for its diplomatic reception rooms. Some of his pieces are also housed at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Mr. Easby lived nearly all of his life at his mansion (Baleroy) in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is said to be one of the most actively haunted houses in the United States. He was a graduate of Chestnut Hill Academy and studied illustration for five years at the Philadelphia College of Art. Mr. George Meade Easby has always been an extremely kind and generous person to everyone. He died on December 11, 2005, at Keystone Hospice in Wyndmoor, PA, at the age of 87, leaving no siblings or children. He was buried at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia.
