The Other Rex Morgan

Rex Morgan, M.D. was a renowned everyman hero of the funny pages of an earlier era (the creator died in 1991, but the strip has continued, although it is less popular than it was in its heyday). Denver, however, had its own community hero of the same name:

The Rex Morgan Citizen Volunteer Award has been a Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) tradition since 1998 and honors a resident whose leadership has made a significant impact on the arts, science and cultural community in the seven-county SCFD district. The award is named after one of the founders of SCFD, the late Rex Morgan, a tireless civic activist and trustee of the Denver Art Museum. The deadline for nominations is September 15th. To nominate a qualified candidate and to learn more about the award please visit: www.scfd.org.
