David Clarkson McJonathan-Swarm|
(November 23, 1947 - living) U.S.A.
David McJonathan-Swarm was born in Decatur, Illinois.
Fascinated by history his entire life, a medical researcher, photographer, and biographer he started writing bios for some of the 'famous' listings at Find A Grave which he discovered from a Google search on Erik Rhodes. Finding many persons that he had known, socially and through broadcasting, in New York City listed, he started to submit 'Better Bios' on the Find A Grave Forums thread.
He was Edgar de Evia's companion and business partner from 1966 until his death. David was often a model for experimental photography by Edgar.
David Clarkson McJonathan-Swarm likes to think of himself an Edwardian in his eclecticism and interests. Technically 'retired' and collecting a pension following the physically disabling injuries sustained from the impact of a tractor trailer to his Mazda RX-7 in 1991. His wife alleges that "he is busier now than when he worked full-time and we had five sons at home." To many he is known simply as "Mack" or "Doc."
