George Hayden

George began his career in 1964 as an apprentice lineman. At that time George began collecting
linemans tools and insulators realizing that they were just being thrown out. He started saving
everything he could. His collection grew and soon George wanted to share his passion and the
history of line work with others. This passion became The Hayden Family Project. That small
collection is now a 38 foot trailer that has been all over the United States and has been view by
tens of thousands of people. At the age of 74 George passed away. His family has put his
passion, the trailer, on loan to the International Lineman’s Museum, the Mobile Museum.
