    Huell Howser's Orange Connection

    Huell Howser, the host of the popular PBS series "California's Gold" travelogues, died at age 67.Howser died at his home in Palm Springs Sunday night from natural causes , said Ayn Allen, corporate communications manager for KCET.

    In May of 2007 Howser brought his Road Trip program to Orange. The program featured popular Old Towne favorites like breakfast at Watson’s and a tour of the Plaza featuring a stop at A&P Collectables. Other stops include Pitcher Park and the little-known-outside-of-Orange gems: the Orange County Badminton Club; the Friendly Center; and Prime Produce (CLICK ON: ORANGE
    and ORANGE EPISODE )

    In 2011, Howser donated all of his public television shows, including the “California’s Gold“, series to Chapman University and over 250 boxes of papers and memorabilia, plus over 1,800 books on California. Chapman agreed to digitized the programming for free worldwide access on the internet (CLICK ON: Chapman ARCHIVES). In addition, Howser’s paper collections were to be organized and housed in Chapman’s Leatherby Libraries.

    The last show posted on the archive last month was California’s Gold Episode 410 on the town of Amboy, on Route 66 in California’s Mojave Desert. In announcing his passing, the Chapman Howser Archival site has asked in lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to one of these two funds (CLICK ON to donate):
