Letter to Tiger Talk, Tiger Beat, February 1972
I just had to write and tell you the marvelous thing Pete Duel did for this city and its people. Our local TV station had a telethon for the March of Dimes and Pete worked very hard and unselfishly for many hours to raise money for those who need it so badly. He signed autograph after autograph, and you could see how happy he was to be doing everything. Before he left, he kissed me and signed autographs for me and other lucky people. Not many stars would do something as wonderful as Pete. By the way, we collected $40,018, which is pretty good for a small town!
