Grace Bradley Boyd dies at 97; actress, widow of William ‘Hopalong Cassidy’ Boyd



Grace Bradley married William Boyd three weeks after they met in 1937, becoming the fifth — and last — Mrs. William Boyd. Despite the age difference — he was 42; she was 23 — she said, “We were absolutely right for each other.” (Richard W. Bann)
