William Lynn, Jr. a.k.a. “Tee Linn” used the alias to escape the clutches of his prominent Philadelphia family.  Lynn was an up and coming driver with a great future until an August 11, 1934 race at Langhorne, Pennsylvania where he crashed into the fence to avoid hitting a boy who ran across the racetrack.  He suffered a broken shoulder in what would be his last competitive effort.

     The car above was the former Yagle Miller in which Frank Farmer perished on August 28, 1932 at Woodbridge, New Jersey after tangling with a car driven by Bill Neopolitan.  Neopolitan also died in that accident.  Lynn installed the Hisso engine in this car for the 1934 AAA season – Carl Sweigert photo above from the Larry Sullivan collection
