Johnny Rutherford would have attended Castleberry High School, but it didn't exist at that time. People in River Oaks and Sansom Park like Rutherford and Bob Schieffer attended North Side High.
By the way, Johnny Rutherford's personal car in the 1970's was a Jensen Interceptor. And i saw him a couple of times at a Nautilus health club on Camp Bowie Blvd at Wellington. One time an ABC sports crew was there taping a segment with him.
Former NBA player, coach, and general manager Mike Dunleavy also worked out at that health club. I think he was with the Houston Rockets at the time and his wife is from Fort Worth so that's why he spent time here.
I'm only saying what I saw. I didn't know these guys.

I found a quote mentioning a doctor who might should be on the list, if we knew who he or she was...?
"In Fort Worth, Texas there is a drug clinic which takes people off the streets and helps them get over bad LSD trips. They don't use any traditional medical treatment whatsoever. All they do is play the patient our Smiley Smile album and apparently this acts as a soothing remedy which relaxes them and helps them to recover completely from their trip." – Carl Wilson, (1970)

This interesting opinion piece by Don Woodard Sr. appeared in the Fort Worth Business Press recently. Woodard shares his memories of Jim Wright. During the period of 1950s to 1970s he rose from being mayor of Weatherford to U.S. congressman, and House Speaker. Though not a Fort Worth native, Wright is best known for representing our city in Congress.
