Monday Mystery: I was born in Fort Worth and raised on a farm near San Angelo. During WWII, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy but was too tall for several positions so I was transferred to the Marine Corps. I attended Hardin-Simmons University; transferred to and graduated from the University of Texas; then studied drama at the University of Southern California. I became a contract player with Warner Brothers. Disney selected me for three episodes depicting the adventures of an American (and Texan) hero. These three episodes have been called the first TV miniseries and set off a retailing frenzy for coonskin caps. Who was I? Email your answer to info@texasfortstrail.com
