Hall of Great Westerners
The history of the American West is one of extraordinary human achievement and moral purpose. Its people and their lives have held a pervasive, enduring appeal not only in the United States, but throughout the world.
The more than 200 men and women honored within the Hall of Great Westerners represent the heart and spirit of this virile Western heritage and embody a precious and immutable legacy. Explorers, Native American leaders, writers, poets, statesmen and others who have revered the land, cherished freedom of individuality, inspired their fellow man, and found the strength of character to overcome tremendous adversity find a home within this unique and enduring national memorial.
Inductees are recognized with a permanent wall placard located in the Edward L. Gaylord Exhibition Wing.
I was there in March of 2006.
Look at the large center plaque. On the left hand side below the corner of the large plaque is James Drury's plaque & then Chuck Connors plaque, the one with the red dot.
