William Boyd Facts
There is a Hopalong Cassidy Museum located in Cambridge, Ohio.

Television talk-show host Johnny Carson told a story of how, in the mid-1960s, he met Boyd on a plane while flying cross-country. He asked Boyd, who hadn't made any public appearances in many years, if he would like to come on Carson's show, "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (1962). Boyd politely declined, and when Carson asked why, Boyd replied that he thought it would be too much of a jolt for kids--even though they were now adults--who had grown up seeing Hoppy as a tall, strong young cowboy hero to see him as the old man that Boyd now was.

Inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1995.
