Anne Marmon Greenleaf

Anne Marmon Greenleaf (the last living direct relative of the Marmon family that established the Marmon automobile business), celebrates WK Gilbert's original painting of Ray Harroun in the 1911 Indianapolis 500-winning Marmon Wasp.  Anne was one of the guests of honor at the "Artomobilia" art show held in May 2009 in Carmel, Indiana. WK Gilbert, the official artist of the upcoming feature-length movie about the first Indianapolis 500, created art live of the street scene at the event. Anne's grandfather Walter Marmon was president of Nordyke & Marmon and her uncle, Howard, was its chief engineer. Walter reorganized the company as the Marmon Motor Car Company in 1926.
