George is residing with his parents in the 1940 census Chambers, Apache, AZ. Both of his parents were workin in "genereal merchdise", the father as operator & the mother as saleslady (did they have a store?). George had no occupation. In 1935, all three had lived in "same house".

Per the1943 marriage certicate for George & Ruth, it was a first marriage for each of them. Both were residing in Los Angeles; he was a draftsman and she was a teacher.

The Castaic jail opened in 1938 as the Wayside Honor Farm, where minor miscreants, mostly drunks, were on their honor not to escape. They grew produce and made toys for poor kids. Among its alumni was Shirley Temple's first husband. Robert Mitchum also was a guest in 1949. The jail changed its name along with its character. In 1949, it dropped "farm" for "rancho," making the place sound like a western movie set. In the 1950s, it added a maximum-security building but stayed low key; a book drive for the jail library asked in particular for poetry, philosophy and psychology. In 1983, it became the Peter J. Pitchess Honor Rancho, named for a former sheriff. After a couple of jailbreaks, Castaic locals realized that it wasn't populated just by inebriates and pickpockets, and in 1995 the county admitted the obvious, dumping "honor" and calling what had become a multi-jail compound the Pitchess Detention Center.
