Highwheelers and White Wheelers

by Nancy DeWitt

We have a busy week ahead, starting with the Vernon L. Nash Classic Car Show at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks this weekend. We'll have our 1909 International Harvester Auto Buggy and 1923 Mercury-bodied Model T Speedster at the show, so stop by for a visit if you're in town. The show hours are 10-5 on Saturday and 11-5 on Sunday.

We're putting Willy through "White Steamer boot camp" soon and hope to have him trained up on our big 1907 Model G before month's end. In the meantime, we were delighted to have two special visitors stop by the museum yesterday to see our White Steam Car. Mrs. Conrad White of Gates Mills, Ohio is shown here with her grandson, Michael York White of Missoula, Montana. Michael is the great great great grandson of Thomas H. White (founder of the White Sewing Machine Co.) and the great great grandson of Rollin H. White (of White Motor Car fame). How great is that?
