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.
