The "King of the Cowboys" authorizes the San Bernardino County Fair to use his picture on the cover for their 1978 program.
Typed Note Signed: "Roy Rogers", 1p, 8½x11. Victorville, California, 1978 July 31. On letterhead of the Roy Rogers - Dale Evans Museum, no recipient named. In full: "I hereby authorize The San Bernardino County Fair to use my picture fo the cover of their official program for the 1978 Fair - one use only. These programs are to be sold only during the Fair and at the Fair location, no other location." Signed the year after Rogers made his last television appearance - as a guest star on the TV series, Wonder Woman. A founding member of the Western music group, Sons of the Pioneers (1934), Roy Rogers (1911-1998), born Leonard Slye, broke into films as a singing cowboy the following year. Beginning in 1938, he had starring roles in dozens of Western films that featured his horse, Trigger, and his frequent sidekick, Gabby Hayes. Another frequent co-star was Dale Evans. Roy and Dale co-starred in several films, including The Cowboy and the Senorita (1944), The Yellow Rose of Texas (1944), Don't Fence Me In (1945), My Pal Trigger (1946) and Apache Rose (1947), before they were married in 1947. They then starred on television on The Roy Rogers Show (1951-1957) and The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show (1962-1963), which closed with their theme song, "Happy Trails to You", written by Evans. Married for 50 years, "The King of the Cowboys" and "The Queen of the West" were a devoted couple with many children (many whom they adopted) and grandchildren. Lightly creased. ½-inch tear at upper blank margin. Stray ink mark at lower edge. Slightly soiled. Overall, fine condition.
