Jean S. Argetsinger Symposium on International Motor Car Racing History
BEHIND THE SCENE OF A GREAT EVENT -
Don Capps, heading up the SAH's racing heritage historical preservation effort as chairman of the SAH International Motor Sports History Section put in a masterful job soliciting papers for presentation participation, coordinating the selected papers into a comprehensive and cohesive Symposium, structuring the event format and working with both Tom Weidemann and Glenda Gephart of the IMRRC to arrange the myriad of minute details, including scheduling, use of three facilities, video productions and live streaming of presentations via the internet, audio-visual equipment availability, presenter credentials and coordinating with the Watkins Glen Elks Club to host the end of event dinner (which was incredibly delicious and thoroughly enjoyable). Don also served as Master of Ceremonies and stepped to present Jonathan Summers' paper on "Little Joe" Weatherly. Needless to say Don was indispensable and very, very busy!
