Uncle Clayton had already found a following back when the show was still young.
There was a Clayton Moore Fan Club across the nation.
With it came a newsletter that went out to the club's members on a monthly basis.
It was crude by today's standards but a very special publication just the same.

The scan above, shows the cover of the first anniversary issue.
It's from the year, 1951. The next two scans are also from this issue.
This scan shows the credits page of 1951's first anniversary issue.
What made the newsletter so special was, not only did it have personal messages from Uncle Clayton.
There were small personal photos attached to the page as well. As You can see in the scan above.
Members could remove the photos to make their own personal scrapbooks.
In this particular message. He mentions that He had just completed His 78th episode.
That episode would have been; "Mr. Trouble" (Mar. 8, 1951)
He then makes mention of a 'Personal Appearance Tour.' If memory servers me well.
I believe that would have been the 78th of a total of 221 episodes.
This was the cover for the end of 1952.
His first year out of uniform as the Lone Ranger.
The context of the personal message below confirms that.
In this personal messege He mention both that He finished making a movie called,
'Buffalo Bill's Wagon Train.' and that it's name might be changed.
In fact it was changed to, 'Buffalo Bill in Tomahawk Territory.'
He also mentions that He just completed a Charles Starret movie.
I believe that would have been: 'The Hawk of Wild River.'
He even mentions that the new house will be named after the newsletter.
Notice the name and address on the 1952 cover.
The photo above bears a striking ressemblance doesn't it?
