walter s. garrison
Walter Garrison was one of the prominent horsemen in the east in the first third of the twentieth century. Among the champions he trained and drove were Berry The Great, Peter Stevens and Gordon Dillon. Garrison drove for several stables during his long career, including the William B. Eckert Stable and the stable of T. L. Gustin. Garrison's death in 1937 was a result of one of the worst accidents in harness racing history. The accident at the Lewiston, Pennsylvania Fair killed not only Walter Garrison, but driver George Satterfield as well and brought serious injury to Miles S. Fox.
