George attended Granby public schools and Wesleyan Academy, Wilbraham, Massachusets; received an A.B. from Wesleyan Univeristy in Middletown, Connecticut in 1892; and attended Garrett Biblical Institute at Northwestern University 1892-94. He transferred to yale Divinity School in the fall of 1894, receiving a B.D. from Yale University in 1895. He was later to receive honorary M.A.s from Wesleyan in 1912 and Trinity Colege in 1919.

Godard taught school in Granby in 1882-83 and enrolled at Wesleyan in fall of 1887; however, he left at the end of his junior year to "assist in the building and installation of the Cossitt Library n North Granby". He ws appointed librarian of the Cossitt Library in Granby in 1890. In August 1898, godard became asistant to State Librarian Charles J. Hoadly. Following Hoadly's death in November 1900, he was appointed State Librarian.

For genealogists and historians, Godard is best remembered as the person who envisioned a set of genealogical indexes and hired Lucius B. Barbour and Charles R. Hale to spearhead those projects.
