Viewing Record 20 of 102 artist: Shay, Arthur


Florence and new-born Harmon in 1951. At four Harmon would create patterned tracks in the snow, and a few years later would win his junior high science fair with an electronic roller skate directed by the light from his flashlight. Harmon, in the central tragedy of our family’s life, would be murdered in the Hippie jungles of Florida in 1972 two weeks before his 21st birthday. His body was never recovered.
