On this date in 1943 Caleb S. Bragg, pioneer racer and co-inventor with Victor W. Kliesrath of a power brake, died in New York City at age 58. Their Bragg-Kliesrath Company was purchased in the 1930s by Bendix Aviation, and supplied the main shift cylinder for the Cord 810/812.

I'm more amazed every day at how few antique car people have any concept as to how that shifter system works. We had one awhile back that would not shift, so I pulled the front cover so I could shift it by hand to move it where it needed to go, and a guy who had been around Cords for years wanted to know what all that junk was.
