Screenshot of mcgovernhrc Instagram post. Another intriguing image from the nurse’s scrapbook: “The race car” (her caption). Intriguing because we don’t know what kind of car this is—we crowdsourced it to several vintage auto groups and the best guess is that it’s a race-modified Lozier. Lozier was an ultraluxury—they could cost three times as much as a Cadillac—brand manufactured in Detroit between 1900 and 1915. This car seems to have a 1914 Michigan plate. Lozier won a close and disputed second place in the first Indianapolis 500 in 1911. This car appears to have no actual body, which would make sense in a race car of the time. We desperately wish she had left a note explaining the context! [@mcgovernhrc IC 022 Memorial Hospital records]

He graduated from UTMB Galveston in 1906 and practiced in several towns until he joined Baylor, then in Dallas, in 1911. He stayed at Baylor for the rest of his career except for a few years at Fort Sam Houston during World War I. He was dean at Baylor for 30 years starting in 1923. He advocated for Baylor’s move to Houston in 1943. P-887, three of six images, from IC 098 TMC Library Historic Photographs. [@mcgovernhrc]
