He was almost court martialed for taking the supplies for the trampoline from the army depot but an officer who had been a gymnast from Michigan dropped the charges. When he returned from the army he didn't want to be a machinist so he decided to go into watchmaking. He earned one of the two highest degrees in watchmaking. He retained his business for a long time and then became an instructor at Edison Technical School and eventually went to North Seattle Community College as an instructor.
A sun dial was placed on that campus to commemorate his work there. Sculpted by Daryl Smith, erected inthe dial is a memorial to George, who was the founder of the College's Horology Department, now succeeded by the Watch Technology Institute.
He also went back to the "Y" where he trained himself and hoped to interest other men, including another local Tommy Thorson, in working on the gymnastics apparatus. Since he always enjoyed teaching others, he had classes for young people.
The first competitive open meet after the war was in and was conducted by George Lewis.
In Eric Hughes brought one of his students, Rudy Peterson, to compete at a gymnastic meet at the "Y" and that is where these two met. Thereafter they did hand balancing together and performed at shows in order to further interest in the sport.
Eric had a children's programs but he was only able to accommodate boys at his UW facility.
When he got calls to teach girls, Eric referred them to George Lewis at the downtown "Y". Thus George started with the girls programs. The first of these girls was Patsy Walkup beginning in about and This group of people would train at the Seattle Y on Wednesdays and apparently would also go to the UW gym.
In the Nationals were held in Seattle in conjunction with the World's Fair and Dale won the all-around. That meet was a trial for the upcoming World Games in Czechoslovakia that coming summer. Dale was a member of that team and George was a coach.
