Lorenzo Fuller: From High Plains to Television Pioneer

YOUNGFULLERWITHHARPSMALLER

 

Lorenzo Dow Fuller, Jr. was a pioneer in the early days of television, but his parents were also Pioneers in their own right. His father was a traveling musician, taking his family on his tours throughout the Midwest.  Young Lorenzo played the harp, like his father.

After attending the University of Kansas on a scholarship, Lorenzo made his way to New York and quickly made a splash, becoming a sought after talent on Broadway, radio and television. He soon had a spot as the host of his own network show on the new NBC TV network.

His star began to fade and he spent the last many years of his life living anonymously in New York. He did make a final visit to his western Kansas hometown…although it should not have been his last.
