Art Harris: Follow Up

Three days ago we ran a short piece about former Sonic Art Harris, a one-time All-Rookie Team member who passed away last October at the age of 60.

At the end of the story, I asked for any possible insights into Harris' life our readers might offer. Sadly, no information has been forthcoming, so I'll ask again:

Is there anyone out there who might have information about Art Harris' life? He left the NBA in 1972, 36 years ago, playing 21 games for the Suns before seeing his professional career come to an end. Between 1972 and 2007, when he died, I can't find a lick of information about the man. Here's some framework, if it helps:

-Born and raised in Los Angeles
-Attended Jordan High School in LA
-Attended Stanford University
-Drafted by Seattle in the NBA and the Oakland Oaks in the ABA in 1968
-Played in Seattle for 1 1/2 years after leaving Stanford
-Played in Phoenix from 1970 to some point in the 1972 season

And then?
