About George Clifford Byrd

"George Clifford Byrd, a bacteriologist and a native son of Crisfield on the Eastern Shore of Maryland USA, patented a process in 1951 to extend the shelf life of crabmeat to about six months, retaining essentially the same qualities as that of freshly picked crabmeat from steam-cooked crabs. His process established the water bath method of pasteurization, still in use today." (..."Pasteurizing Crab Meat" by Michael W. Paparella)
