Guy Murchie was one of the most interesting people who ever worked for Seaboard. Before working for Seaboard as a navigator, he attended Harvard University and had been a photographer, staff artist and reporter for the Chicago Tribune. He was a war correspondent in England and Iceland from 1940 to 1942. He was also a flight instructor.

He was best known, however, as an author who wrote several books on a variety of subjects. His books were illustrated with his own etchings and woodcuts. Perhaps the most famous of his books is Song of the Sky (1954). His other books include Men on the Horizon (1932), Music of the Spheres (1961), and The Seven Mysteries of Life (1978).
