Steve, I saw Jay Silverheels (Tonto) in 1957 at Madison Square Garden, along with Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger). Recently, I found out that Clayton Moore had been in a contract dispute with the producers of The Lone Ranger, and he left that series around the time that I saw him. Previously, he had a contract dispute, during the earlier filming of the series. If one sees the old reruns, the actor John Hart fills in for Clayton Moore. His voice was distinctively deeper. Also, I saw Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, and Pat Brady at Madison Square Garden. I may have seen all of the above actors at the same rodeo, which was held at the Garden. The most dangerous stunt that I saw there, was a cowboy riding a brahma bull.

Regarding Harvey Kolonko, I saw him in a VCR tape, which I purchased in 1990; it was the reunion of the 1957 class. The reunion was held in April or May of 1990, somewhere on Ocean Parkway. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it into NYC to attend, but was able to see the video. Of the 167 graduates, I believe that about 45-50 came to the reunion. Harvey must have been involved in the planning, as he sat on the dais, and delivered some remarks. He may have been retired from the NYPD at that time. I lent that tape to someone in our class who lives in Florida. Even though I reminded him to send me the tape back, he never did. I guess that some people have no conscience.
