      The Phil Harms material at the Benson Ford Research Center of The Henry Ford Museum is what the the then-curator of transportation (my friend Bob Casey) received from the family when they picked it up in California. I have used the material and realized that there are items that Phil had to have had that somehow were not conveyed to THF Museum. Mostly items not necessarily that would come to mind, perhaps, but there is almost nothing of the material that Phil gathered from Motor West, for instance, as well as various other items that only a few would be aware of in the first place. Apparently, this material simply got overlooked or misplaced or something as the family prepared the material for donation to THF. That it was donated in the first place is a minor miracle given the other collections that have simply vanished or auctioned off rarely or never to be seen again.
