    Hiram Percy Maxim was responsible for the steering wheel on automobiles 
being placed on the left. He is the inventor of the Maxim silencer, he built 
and drove the first car in Connecticut and won the first track car race ever 
held in the U.S.
    These and other facts about Hiram Percy Maxim can be found in the book, 
"Hiram Percy Maxim" by Alice Clink Schumacher. What a great book!
