George H. Currier was reported in Pioneer Photographers Of The Far West A Biographical Dictionary, 1840-1865.  By Peter E. Palmquist and Thomas R. Kailbourn.  Their original citation was from the Sacramento Daily Union (Sacramento, California) on November 18, 1854.  Robert H. Vance announced the accession of a new “artist,” or, presumably, operator, for his Sacramento gallery: “the subscriber takes pleasure in announcing to the public of Sacramento and vicinity, that he has engaged the services of Mr. Geo. H. Currier, an experienced artist from the first establishments in New York and Boston…”

This is the only mention of George H. Currier in other photographic directories.  He was not listed in the 1840-1854 Boston City Directory.
