ca. 1959: "Royal Visit"

In 1959, Roy Rogers was king of the cowboys and Dale Evans was queen of the West, so it was no surprise that the city was buzzing with the news of their visit to Memphis.  It was during the Mid-South Fair that Sheriff's Chief Deputy John Carlisle had the honor of making Rogers an honorary deputy. During their visit, the two also attended an event at the Bristol Theatre on Summer before riding off into the sunset (even if it was in a plane)
