What was the real name of one of my favorite cowboy stars, Sunset Carson?
—Caren Winter, Ripley, W.Va.
Born Winifred Maurice Harrison in Gracemont, Okla., Carson was a rodeo performer before starring in Westerns for Republic Studios in the 1940s. In the 1980s he was host of the PBS-TV series Six-Gun Heroes. He died in 1990 at age 69 of an apparent heart attack.
