George was raised in Evanston, Illinois, in a two-story flat near Lake Michigan. He was an only child, and it didn't take him long to develop an aptitude for reading and writing. He attended Northwestern University from 1939 to 1943, and graduated with a bachelor's degree in English. Soon after, during World War II, he entered the US Army, and was a columnist for Stars and Stripes, a war time newspaper.
He married Marilyn Jean Wharton on January 11, 1947, and moved into a Georgian style house in Glenview. They had two children, Michael and Bruce.
In the mid 1950s, he was employed by the Jacoby Advertising Agency as a writer. In the 1960s, he was employed by Wilding Studios, and wrote television scripts for the Wild Kingdom television series. In the mid 1960s, he wrote storybooks and maps for the "General Whitman's Adventure" series. He was also the author of dozens of children's books from the Whitman "Big Little Books" series from the mid 1960s until the early 1980s. Towards the end of his career, he wrote a science fiction handbook that was a tutorial used in some college courses. In total, he wrote thirty-eight books. Elrick's favorite book that he had published was "Bonanza: The Bubble Gum Kid."
