WVU Libraries receives more Don Knotts memorabilia

Oct
02

What happened after Deputy Fife hung up his gun holster, Mr. Furley left the landlord business, Mr. Chicken overcame his fears and the Apple Dumpling Gang rode off into the sunset?

That’s when Don Knotts, the comic genius and West Virginia University alumnus, returned to his first love – live theater.

This lesser-known aspect of Knotts’ acting career is chronicled in the latest gift of memorabilia from his widow, Francey Yarborough-Knotts, to the WVU Libraries’ West Virginia and Regional History Collection.
