Who was "Walton?"

I know Indy's middle name is Walton. Who is this person that Indy is named after? An author? Scientist? Poet? Anyone know? When I get a chance (yeah, a "fat chance"), I'll check out the Indy "Wikipedia" and see what I can find there. Guess I'm just impatient and want a quick answer. Pbh.

Of a kind...



I didn't know this previously, but his full name is George Walton Lucas, Jr.

Not that that provides you an in-universe explanation, should there even be one.

Dang, I never knew that. I always found it quite interesting to see the personal touches George put on the saga, whether it be from Indy's dog (based off his own) or even Indy's middle name, as I just discovered.

This was answered a long time ago in an ancient thread of yours:
Indy's middle name is Walton
