George Cornell Supplee BS '13, MS '14, PhD '19 was a biochemist who worked in the milk industry. He was employed by the Casein Co. of America and the Dry Milk Co. where he managed a laboratory. The company was later absorbed into the Bordon Co. He later founded his own consulting group called the G. C. Supplee Research Corp. Several documents from his highschool give his name as George Charles Supplee.


Collection includes a disbound volume containing publications authored or co-authored by Supplee, mostly pertaining to milk and nutrition. A chemistry book from his coursework at Cornell annoted by him throughout. Also his Cornell Ph.D diploma and various certificates.
