George Elton Mayo Elton’s intelligence and charm were acknowledged, but his social standing partially denied him the status that his family once enjoyed. Although Elton was sometimes depressed by being cut and was rankled by his associates, he managed himself constructively by turning to his notebooks. By 1906 Elton shared with George Jacobs a directorship in their printing, lithographing, bookbinding, stationery, and rubber-stamp-making firm. William Mitchell’s Structure and Growth of the Mind, published in 1907, and was to play an important part in Elton’s intellectual growth. Elton had educational interests outside class. Elton kept in touch with the Working Men’s College in London, whose officers held him in high regard for his work there in 1904. A mature undergraduate, Elton proved that he had the perseverence and intelligence required for a scholar’s career. Elton thought that both capitalism and the labor movements overemphasized material efficiency.
