Inside of Lone Ranger's mask
 

Lone Ranger's Mask
late 1940s-1950s

That masked man
This black, felt-covered mask is made of a stiff molded resin, cast to conform to the face of actor Clayton Moore, who played The Lone Ranger on television and in movies between 1949 and 1958. Moore was one of at least 24 actors (including cartoon versions and actors playing the role in personal appearances) who played the character. There have been 12 Tontos, the Ranger's faithful companion.

Notes
Donated in 2000 by Clayton Moore's daughter, Dawn Moore.
Clayton Moore, born September 14, 1914, Chicago, IL; died December 28, 1999, West Hills, CA
