2004 Hall of Fame Inductee

Walter Charles Morse

 

Born into a pioneer family in Tarrant County’s oldest black community of Mosier Valley, Walter Charles Morse has a long history of involvement in the western culture. A Champion Steer Wrestler, at a time when rodeos were segregated, (late 1950’s and early 60’s), Morse was a inspiration to youth in the African American community as they viewed (a first time for many) a member of their community involved in the rodeo industry. An avid horseman, Morse has always worked around animals as an equestrian groomer, trainer and as a veterinarian’s assistant. He is also known for his involvement with the Cowtown Posse Arena, Fort Worth, Texas, Denton Rodeo Association, Denton, Texas and Mansfield Rodeo Arena, Mansfield, Texas, and in the “Fort Worth Stockyards” as a Drover for “The Fort Worth Herd”, where he served as an ambassador for Fort Worth and a “living symbol” of our diverse western heritage before his retirement.
