Earl Brewer of Miss, April 27, 1914, G. Beck" also "George Beck was an early Port Blakely resident. He ran the "Please U" Theatre in the old P.B. Masonic Temple. He vowed he would visit every state in the Union on his Pinto pony with his dog and call on each governor. It is believed that he did so. He worked at J.C. Johnson's shipyard as a shipwright and later as a house carpenter. He built much of Lynwood Center for Mr. & Mrs. E. S. Olsen. He is shown on right on this picture with his dog."
