George Taylor was the editor of the Metropolis Daily Planet prior to Perry White.

Shortly after Clark Kent moved from Smallville to attend college, Taylor assigned White to get a story proving that Superboy was active in Metropolis. Taylor and White were proven correct and welcomed Superboy to their city.[1]

A few years later, Taylor turned 65 and was forced to retire from the Planet. Perry White succeeded him.[2]

Taylor's son was editor of Star City's Daily Star.[3]


In Superman #366, Taylor had brown hair. In Superman: The Secret Years #4, he had grey hair.
