Gail Whitmer bought the Morris Taxi Service in late 1959. He was familiar with the taxi company because he was in a unique position of being the former night driver for Mr. Luckens "Morris Taxi" company. He worked out of the Merchant's Hotel and had two taxis.
In this interview, Gail Whitmer talks about different people he transported, costs of operation, and city involvement. He decided to sell the business in 1968 because of an arthritic hip. However, he never was able to sell the business as he could find no buyer.
