PROFILE: Byron Bluth
We take a look at Milford Academy graduate, Buster, in the fifth part of our nine-part series profiling Newport Beach’s own Bluth family.
Byron Bluth, affectionately known as Buster, is the youngest son of George, Sr. and Lucille Bluth. A perennial graduate student, he’s studied everything from Native American tribal ceremonies to cartography. Buster has participated in a sleep deprivation study for the University of Chicago and a French exchange program, and has also participated in an archaeological dig for a Smithsonian fellowship, where he was 10% responsible for destroying a potential pterodactyl fossil.
Buster was named chairman of the Bluth Company shortly after George, Sr. was arrested for securities fraud, but his brief stint was mercifully ended when he discovered that his 18th-century agrarian business classes failed to prepare him for the world of housing development.
Buster suffers from panic attacks.
