I have been researching the AAA midget races in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1938. Chris was very kind to allow me access to his collection for information. My uncle Jack Morrissey and Chris sold the the Bergen Hearld racing supplement at the local tracks when they were teen agers We had a pleasant conversation at Hinchliff Stadium two years ago when he viewed the restored "White Phantom", Driven by Bill Morrissey. Chris helped to load the cars on the S.S. Argentina in 1938 and had fond memories of the racers and mechanics of "Gasoline Alley" in Paterson,NJ. Chris never forgot these early years and the people involved. God Bless him and my he rest peacefully to the roar of the mighty midgets.
