I remember in either Nov.or Dec. Of '92 I met James Drury at Mermorial City Hospital in Houston when my daughter and his wife were both in the hospital at the same time. Mr. Drury and I spoke for about 10 min.and he was very polite and cordial. As I was driving home that day I realized that his real life personality and his role as the Virginian were one in the same. He looked you in the eyes and was serious but friendly as we spoke. A real stand up,no nonsense type of man.
