Pebble Beach giant Jules Heumann dies


In 1972, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was floundering until collector Jules Heumann and his friend and fellow collector Lorin Tryon stepped up to serve as co-chairmen. Together they selected the cars, established judging standards, and generally labored to establish the Concours as the premier event of its kind. They worked together for 26 years until Tryon’s death in 1999. For that year, Heumann chaired the Concours alone before turning over the reins to Glenn Mounger.
