Samuel Arthur Thompson (1880-1944), Maryland Surveyor License No. 184, came to work at the firm in 1898, and never left.

Not much is known about him personally, but his work was prolific: he filled 76 field notebooks during the course of his tenure here, more than any other individual.

Thompson was ill for some months prior to his death, and was intentionally not told of Wimmer's sudden illness and death for fear the shock might damage his already fragile health. Nevertheless, he died 11 weeks after Wimmer, leaving Howard Tustin, Sr. alone to run the firm.
