|Mac Archer R.I.P.
Shreve McLaren Archer III, MD, known
to his many friends as "Mac", died June 18, 2007 at Stanford Medical Center.
He was 58. Complications from the treatment of leukemia was the cause
of Mac's way too early death.

He raced his 427 Cobra for 22
years in California historic events. Here he gives a young race fan
the thrill of sitting in the driver's seat.
Mac also raced Can-Am cars, winning the
"AutoWeek Vintage Motor Racing Challenge" in 1993 driving the ex-Roger
McCaig McLaren 8C-Chevrolet. His latest automotive project was
the restoration and race preparation of the ex-Gary
Wilson "Sting" Can-Am car.
|From Eric Bernhard of "Entropy Racing":
"While the Sting was his last personal
CAR project, he was more recently the designer of the "First Seat" infant
car seat ( due to be on the market in the near future), and a custom seat
and head surround for Jimmy Castle's Lola 222 BB Can-Am car (expected to
be on west coast racetracks next year). And not to forget that he
was also the medical consultant for the design of the "extractable seat"
used in all current F1 cars."
Before beginning his career in historic
racing, Mac raced motorcycles in California and Florida.
A Pediatrician, Mac practiced medicine
on the Monterey Peninsula for decades. He's survived by his wife,
Kim, and his sons Damon James Archer and Shreve McLaren Archer IV.
