Gil Stevenson info - Boston contact?

I would very much like to get a scan of a picture in The Harvard Crimson, published Wednesday, April 20, 1938. The title is "Steam Car Modeled After Stanley Steamer Makes Auspicious Debut" and it is supposed to show a car driven by Gilbert W Stevenson with 4 Harvard men hanging on. Maybe someone near Cambridge could go the the library and make a good scan.

Stevenson's early life and what he did from 1950 to about 1970 seem to be hard to track down. Any ideas?

Also don't forget Alan Bemis built a Stanley racer with an underslung frame before the war,,

OK, Ben, I got on the Crimson website and asked for a copy of the picture. I am now holding my breath. Oops, had to let it out again. Hoping for the best...

And, hey, you can really slide off-topic fast. I've gotta see how the Mass ant auto plate attaches, 'cause how big could an auto for an ant be, anyhow? I suppose Alan would have known.
