Arizona Celebrates John Wayne's 100th Birthday
By Gillian Ferris Kohl
Springerville, AZ – This weekend, Hollywood will celebrate what would have been the 100th birthday of one of its biggest stars...John Wayne. But, there will also be a 3-day party right here in northern Arizona in the twin towns of Springerville and Eager. That's where The Duke spent many of his later years and where he maintained one of the largest Hereford cattle ranches in the country. Arizona Public Radio's Gillian Ferris Kohl reports.
