George H. Buterbaugh was born in Latrobe, PA, the son of Henry Clyde Buterbaugh. He attended Latrobe High School before studying architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, where he completed a B. Arch. in 1926. Buterbaugh began his professional career as a draftsman and designer in the New York office of Charles A. Platt, for whom he worked in 1925-1931. Between 1936 and 1938, Buterbaugh returned to Philadelphia to work in the office of Paul P. Cret, and in 1939-1940 was in the office of Cram & Ferguson. Thereafter, Buterbaugh worked in New York, first in association with Harrie T. Lindeberg and then with Eggers & Higgins from 1948. Buterbaugh retired before 1970. He joined the national AIA in 1955 and was a member of the New York City Chapter.
