My great grandfather, Nelson Howard, is 2nd from left. This is the Board of Santa Anita Racetrack. He passed away before I was able to ask him who these people were, so I got the names from Mr. Strub, son of the Strub pictured. They are from left:
Victor Ford Collins, 1st sect. of the corp. and general counsel to the Turf Club, Nelson A. Howard, Dr. Charles/Doc Strub, Hal Roach, Leigh Battson, Arthur Hastings and Dwight Whiting. These men were largely responsible for getting the race track built at Santa Anita in about 1934.
