Dale Robertson

Dale RobertsonWe learn Dale Robertson passed away yesterday. He was 89.

Robertson starred in several movies and television shows, but we know him best as star of NBC’s “Tales of Wells Fargo,” which ran from 1957-62. As Wells Fargo man Jim Hardie, Robertson protected stagecoaches and their cargoes from the travails of life in the wild West. “Tales of Wells Fargo” was one of dozens of TV westerns, a genre of redoubtable popularity in that era. Robertson appeared at Wells Fargo events in California to boost the show during its run.

Robertson was also a horseman of note, and it was his favorite pastime. His Oklahoma ranch reportedly kept hundreds, including many champions.

“Tales of Wells Fargo” was an interesting chapter in Wells Fargo’s history. That history continues, but we will miss Dale Robertson.
