ANDY DEVINE'S VAN NUYS HOME IN 1939

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY                2013

The Director of Tours and Adventures for The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is the accomplished actor and fine art photographer Richard Hilton. For some time now, Richard has been searching for information about the home of the western film actor Andy Devine, who lived off of Kester Avenue where Richard is planning a second Van Nuys walking tour. 
Associate of The Museum, Art Jacobs sends us a clipping taken from a 1939 "movie magazine" that answers many of Richard Hilton's questions. Art's addition to our area's history demonstrates how little-by-little the story of San Fernando Valley notables is coming together.
