Laguna Niguel Resident Remembers: 'My Day With Huell Howser'

Huell Hauser, gne but not forgotten.

Huell Howser was a household name to Southern California. 

His Southern accent and his interest in local culture and interest would shine on the TV screen. 

I enjoyed a photo shoot with Huell in 2011 for a AAA promotion. He talked about his travels, and he was funny, charismatic. We had a grand time cracking jokes during the photo shoot, he will be sadly missed. 

These photos are from my personal collection.

Such a good guy, my wife and I watched him in Nashville when we lived there in the 70s before he came out here. A special man!

Thanks for the article. He was a favorite of mine. He seemed like a very warm person and always had interesting shows in his travels around California.

I was at the same AAA event in 2011 and got an autographed picture with him, which I treasure and proudly display in my home library. I love it and loved his "California Gold" programs. He brought the most ordinary places to life with his charismatic storytelling capabilities, his sense of history and culture and his remarkable ability to make it all relevant today. He is missed. Thanks for reminding us of him, Barton, and his contributions to California, with your nice write-up and excellent photos from your personal collection. Mary D SJC Friends of the Library
