CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2013
Few people under 60 in the United States have even heard of the great cowboy movie star Tom Mix. He was the mega-action star of the Depression Era, and was admired by young and old alike. Older people knew of his background as a warrior in the Spanish-American War. Others found it incredibly romantic that the cowboy on the big screen had been an honest-to-gosh Deputy U.S. Marshall in Oklahoma just after it came into the Union. Tom Mix is buried in the San Fernando Valley in Glendale's historic Forest Lawn Cemetery.
