George Baselton, a heavyset Stanford professor, was hired by InGen to help keep the Isla Nublar incident a secret. A popular face concerning scientific theories, Baselton was able to effectively convince people that InGen’s cloned dinosaurs were a myth. Later, he was hired by Biosyn, a company known for its lack of law-abiding practices, to fix their image. It was discovered by Richard Levine, when he overheard a telephone conversation, that Baselton was part of the InGen conspiracy, apparently looking for the ‘dinosaur island’ Site B. Baselton was to accompany Lewis Dodgson to Site B, and would later write the report that would present their findings to the world. As the trio of Dodgson, Howard King, and Baselton went around stealing eggs from nests, they reached the Tyrannosaurus rex nest. Baselton revealed the information that T. rex may have vision that was based around movement, which was his eventual downfall. He lost his nerve in the rex nest, prompting Dodgson to try and grab an egg in Baselton’s place. This caused his sound machine to lose its power and cut short. In the resulting silence, Baselton was killed by one of the Tyrannosaurs. At the time of death he held the position of Regis Professor of Biology at Stanford.
