I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself as an advisor of the Cultural Awareness and Social Inclusion (“CASI”) Committee through this blog. My name is G. Muir Davis, please call me Muir. I am sixty years old, I am an applied mathematician, I am a city councilmember, and I have lived in La Verne most of my life. La Verne is my hometown. La Verne has been home to my parents and their parents too. For my CASI introductory blog I will first draw your attention to the fact that I am a redhead. I was born in Elgin, Illinois, the first redhead in the line for my dad’s dad, my grandfather C. Ernest Davis; I was told that I got his red hair. My grandfather had 5 children and 10 grandchildren before I showed up as a redhead. The nurses told my mom that I was a redhead when I was first born. My mom’s family had little history with red hair, and I was bald, so she asked the nurse how she could tell. The nurse told her that my hair color was evident in the color and nature of my skin. Apparently, it was obvious, yet photos of my early years do not reveal my red hair.
