BIOGRAPHY: George H. Wayland (1885-1947). George H. Wayland was educated at the University of Washington and began his professional
career in the Seattle area. During World War I he worked for the Emergency Fleet Corporation at shipyards in Seattle and Tacoma,
where he rose to the position of assistant superintendent of the Tacoma yard. Following the War, Wayland joined the Seattle
design firm of Lee & Brinton, and was instrumental in opening their San Francisco office. In 1926 he left the firm to begin
a solo design practice. Over the next two decades, Wayland either worked with or did contract work for the following ship
and boat building yards on the west coast: Colberg Boat Works (Stockton); Geo. C. Boardman Co. (San Francisco); H.R. Fish
& Co.; Wayland for Haviside Company; J.H. Madden and Co.; Madden and Lewis (Sausalito); Nunes Bros.; and Rasmussen Boat Works.
