Well we all knew Gene Autry was the owner of many hotels and here are a few items that Lee
Large collected on his many visits to The Autry in Palm Springs. Lee passed away a
few years back and his wife sold me his collection since she had to move into a home
care center. The hotel items were just a small part of the collection. It seems as the story goes
that after many years of taking their vacations at the Autry they became good friends
with a few of the employees and ended up getting a few unusual items.
There is a picture of Lee with Gene Autry and Pat at one of his stays there and a few pictures of Gene Autry and Jackie when they got their humanitarian award.
So if you never had a chance to stay there like me then check out the menu's and see what foods you missed and all the other goodies. It seems that the Sombrero room was the place to be.
