Eyes of Texas Producer Has Died

Recommended Posts

It is with great sadness that I pass along word of the death of Gary James Tidwell, the co-creator and longtime executive producer of the Eyes of Texas at KPRC TV. He went by the name Gary James over his 40 plus years in TV.

Gary was hired by the legendary Ray Miller to work at KPRC in 1961, and for many years he was part of the finest and most respected television news crew ever assembled in this part of the country. He was an award winning TV reporter for years, but he will always be remembered for helping Miller create and produce The Eyes of Texas -- KPRC's long-running award-winning magazine show about Texas and Texas history in the early 70s. He also co-authored the series of Eyes of Texas Travel Guides that are still available in bookstores.

His countless friends and former associates and colleagues mourn his passing.

Here's Gary's obit in the Houston Chronicle Online Edition.
