1 image. Tex Williams at Children's Hospital, 5 April 1952. Lynn Monkman; Tex Williams (band leader).; Supplementary material reads: "City desk. L.A. Examiner. NBC's Tex Williams has received many illustrious awards in the past, but none that will mean more than the one he received last Friday afternoon at the Children's Orthopedic Hospital in Los Angeles. Pretty, little Lynn Monkman is shown presenting the award to Tex, which is a hammered out figure of a horse, done in copper, and made by the children to honor the star's four year anniversary at the Riverside Rancho, where he currently broadcasts his NBC half-hour TV show every Saturday night. Unknown to most of Tex's fans is the fact that he also has suffered a crippling disease and is a living example and inspiration that a strong determination and a will to succeed can lick any physical handicap".
