But above all, the acting legend was an enduring icon of rugged, American masculinity (this despite his massive doll collection; seriously, look it up). He was as tall as he was conservative, and his distinct voice and cadence remain a symbol of the American man. This exhibit focuses on John Wayne as patriot and inspiration to American troops displaying a variety of his personal and professional artifacts and screening military and patriotic-themed films featuring Wayne as frontier cavalryman, Vietnam-era Green Beret and more.
