Veteran character actor Morgan Woodward`s uncle, Dr. S. A. Woodward, lived in the San Angelo, Texas area. One day, he was called to help in the birth of a male child. The family, not knowing what gender was expected, had not chosen a name, so in honor of the good doctor`s service, they named him Woodward Ritter. Later, he would be known more widely as "Tex" Ritter.


Inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1980.
