  GrahamClayton: Sven Nilsson (b. January 4, 1938, Eskilstuna, Sweden; d. October 16, 2005, Las Vegas, NV)

Sven emigrated with his family to the United States as a young child of 10 years. Sven was an accomplished photographer, having owned Photo by Sven in Salt Lake City. He participated in chess tournaments throughout his life, where he challenged and beat some of the nation's top players. Sven was a taxi cab driver for a total of 40 years, having first worked for Yellow Cab in Salt Lake City, and then for the Yellow Cab Company in Las Vegas. Sven was an officer of the Professional Drivers' Association (PDA) since its beginning in 1989 until he retired as president in 1998. He continued to serve the PDA as an advisor until his death. Sven spent many hours in legal research and advised individual drivers of proper administrative procedures for disciplinary hearings. He served on the "Blue Ribbon Committee" and many other panels on driver safety. In 1993, Sven wrote "The Cabdrivers Bill of Rights," a bill introduced in the Assembly in 1995. Sven continued to fight for drivers' rights up until two weeks before his passing.
