George and colleagues pose with flowering plants (circa 1955; actual size approx. 9.6 x 7.6 in. (24.3 x 19.3 cm.)). The lanky gentleman at far right is Bob Martin, one of my dad's closest associates. Other two photogs not identified. This photo affords a good view of the Graflex Speed Graphic large-format cameras that were in vogue among professional photographers in the 1950s. Note that whereas the others have carnations in their hands, George appears to be holding a frond from a "bird of paradise" plant. Ever the individualist, he often seemed bent on distinguishing himself from others in some way, albeit very unself-consciously. Scanned from a xerograph provided by Delmar Watson; desaturated to remove color artifacts introduced through xerography.
