Arthur Winston, 100
Arthur Winston worked for all the predecessor agencies of the MTA, starting in 1924. He had only missed one day of work and that was in 1988 to attend his wife's funeral. (Winston left the LA Electric Railway Company in 1928 and returned for good six years later.)
Winston was named "Employee of the Century" by President Bill Clinton in 1996.
In 1997 the MTA Board of Directors named the agency’s bus operating division in South Los Angeles after him.
His last job prior to his retirement in March was supervising a crew who cleaned and maintained MTA buses.
A native of Oklahoma, Winston is survived by a grand-niece.
