Monte Hammer, 1897-1988

Monte Hammer and Ford

The Hammers' First Ford -- Yoakum, DeWitt County, Texas

Monte Hammer is recognizable in the center of the photo.
I presume that his brother Alonzo (born in 1901) is pretending to drive and the parents are in the back seat.

Marksman Monte

Monte served in the First World War. He contracted TB and spent several years in the Veteran's Hospital.
When he was able to resume a life on the outside, he competed in archery and made all of the bows and arrows for himself and Gladys.
He met Maynard Parker through their archery and became his assistant in photography shoots.
