 George was one of Jimmie Booth's friends, although George was at least a couple of generations older. They became acquainted through their mutual work at Paramount studios driving teams of horses in movies and TV series.

Jimmie says George was one of the most respected teamsters of his era, the 1930's and 1940's, driving hitches of four, six or eight horses. He told Jimmie he learned his trade in the mid-west driving freight wagons and hauling logs with teams of horses in the 1920's and 1930's.

A big thank you to Laverne and Jimmie Booth for this information!
