I grew up in Accokeek, Maryland, and there was an old geezer in
the neighborhood named "Fergie", who on Sunday mornings would drive
around delivering eggs in a vintage Ford station wagon,
and the neighborhood kids would hop on and ride along. Later,
when I started getting interested in geology, I realized that he was
Henry G. Ferguson,
a very significant USGS field geologist who did seminal work in Nevada
in the 1920's-1950's (see this
Wikipedia article for more detail).
A neighborhood painter named Frank Thornhill
created a painting in 1961 called "Fergie's Egg Route" (which I own); here
is an image of it.
