George Foote

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty AR LLC PB00068179

George Foote was born in Willoughby, Ohio back in 1915 to Robert and Louise.  He received his Bachelor and Master of Arts from the University of Florida in 1939.  After graduation he went on to attend McGill University for medicine.  He performed his internship at Memorial Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina.

He established the Valley Clinic and Hospital in 1948.  In 1953, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy as a Diving and Submarine Medical Officer.  That same year he was sent to Groton, Connecticut serving as Officer-in-Charge until 1964.  He died in 1983, he was 67.

What you may not know about George Foote Bond is that in 1957 he developed a diving technique known as “saturation diving”, a technique that allowed divers to work at great depths for long periods of time.  He was the father of the Genesis project .  That project proved that humans could withstand prolonged exposure of depths using a mixture of different breathing gases.  For his work he received the Navy Commendation Medal for “heroic, professional, and scientific

achievement.  He also received the Legion of Merit in 1960.  Until tomorrow keep a smile on your face, be contagious and pass it on.

You wonder if he had lived longer what else his mind would come up with to either improve his designs or do something new.

A very accomplished man, to be sure, was George Foote... shame he died so young... who knows what else he might have contributed if he'd lived longer.

Good morning James,

Maybe if I was younger for the deep dives and in the meantime I'll stick to my scuba diving.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I served n a Navy diving ship with a bunch of divers and seals so I was aware of this bit of history.  Thanks for keeping the Navy history alive....
