George Hurst '51 took a keen interest in working with leather throughout his school days which has led to a career he still loves today. Soon after graduating from high school, George served in the US Army as a staff sergeant in the Korean War. Upon his return he took a job in Philadelphia as an assistant manager of a Tandy Leather Store and taught leather craft classes at night. After holding a manager position at several east coast Tandy Leather stores, George progressed through the ranks of area, district and regional manager, all the while continuing to teach classes and to be very active in numerous Leathercrafting Guilds.
In 1981 George began to work for The Leather Factory where he designed and engineered all of their leather craft kits. In 1984 he returned to Tandy Leather as a regional manager in the Southeast Division and in 1985 he was promoted to be the national marketing and merchandising manager. Upon his retirement in 1996 he opened his own store, Hide Crafter Leathercrafter in his new hometown of Fort Worth, Texas.
For many years George has very willingly done workshops for the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4H, churches, YMCA, and other youth groups. He not only sells supplies and does workshops for leather crafters, he writes articles, textbooks, and produces instructional videos. In 1991 he received the prestigious Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft.
