Three new stars are joining the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
Adding to the 140 famous St. Louisans already installed on Delmar Blvd. in the Loop will be 19th-century U.S. Sen. Thomas Hart Benton, a champion of manifest destiny; former Cardinal and longtime broadcaster Tim McCarver; as well as Lee Falk, who’s famous for his contributions to comics and theater.
The founder of the St. Louis Walk of Fame, Joe Edwards, wrote the foreword to the book, as well as many of the early profiles. He started the Walk of Fame, he said, to "draw attention to the great St. Louisans who have affected our culture on a national level."
Rocco Landesman has received numerous Tony awards as a Broadway producer and recently completed a three year term as Chair of the National Endowment for the Arts. He considered it a great honor to return to his home town for recognition on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
