The Inimitable George Mason

Mason, Rae Hungerford, The Inimitable George Mason, United States of America: Rae Mason, 1991. (signed by the author for Dr. Thomas Mathews)

From the Foreword:
I first met George in Tampa, Florida, July 1942, when eleven COs [men who refused induction into the armed services for reason of conscientious objection to the war] and two doctors came together en route to Puerto Rico to start the Castañer Health Project. In order to get better acquainted, Leland Brubaker suggested that we pair off and write each other’s life history – “Obituaries”, we called them since most of the shipping in the Caribbean at the time was being sunk by U-boats! George and I were partners.
