Tobias Lear

Col. Tobias Lear V, known as Toby to his friends, left his mark on the early history of the United States as an in-law and the personal secretary to George Washington. He also authored the only firsthand account of the death of the nation’s first president. His journal is his legacy, but his story is one of determination, failure, upheaval, poor judgment and eventual self-destruction.
