Remembering George H. Breiding

Lifelong West Virginia resident George H. Breiding (1917-2007) died peacefully at his home in Morgantown on February 2, 2007. George, a noted birder and naturalist, was a stalwart fixture in the Brooks Bird Club for most of his adult life. Although I met George only once (at a meeting in Morgantown in his later years), I felt I knew him well from having read the many articles on West Virginia birds that he had written and published in The Redstart, the journal of the Brooks Bird Club. George’s spirit will remain with us in the many contributions that he made to West Virginia natural history and ornithology, and in the hearts of those he educated about the wonders of the outdoors. A formal obituary can be found here.
