Photo of George Swain  
  • George Swain was known as "Walking, Talking George" in his home town of Boron, California, where he worked as a chemist at the Borax plant for 44 years.
  • George had three passions, John Muir, conservation, and classical music. He was a member of the John Muir Memorial Association for over 25 years, and attended every annual dinner. He was an outgoing person, who made friends easily, even though he did not fit the common mold. He had no car; but took the train everywhere he went.
