Better known to friends and relatives as "Slim" or "Cowboy Slim Dortch". He was a musician and appeared on many radio stations across the United States in the 1940's and 50's. He loved playing guitar and singing, and wherever he went you could be sure his guitar was in the car with him.

Slim was a cousin to my dad Marion Alfred Nichols. When Slim came by to visit, Dad always asked him to play and sing for us. This usually turned into an hour or two of singing songs and playing his guitar and you always knew he was going to mix in several funny jokes along with his singing. Needless to say we always looked forward to his visits and enjoyed them so much.

Cowboy "SLIM" and his female singing partner for several years, Maggie Murphy, had a souvenir folio of their songs that they used to mail out to their fans. If you click under the pictures to "view all images" you will see the first page in this folio telling alot more about Slim & Maggie. This is a scanned image and will be the 4th picture down.
