Harris Hanshue

This image of driver Harris Hanshue was published in the Indianapolis News on May 23, 1909, and complemented a nice profile article on the man. Hanshue won the inaugural Santa Monica road race, known as the Dick Ferris Trophy. This is the best information I have seen on this very competent west coast driver.
Note that the newspaper misspelled Harris' name. It was, "Hanshue," not, "Henshue." He went on to found Western Express and was later inducted into the Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame.
