Contact Info For John Winston/Mr. Kyle

Wikipedia shows him to be in his late 80s. He probably doesn't have a long time left, and is one of my favorite Trek actors.

I'd like to send him a photo to get autographed- does anyone out there know where I could reach out to for his contact info?

If I were him I would think it would be neat to have some random person contact me for work I was famous for 50 years ago.

Thanks-

-Tom

I always enjoyed his appearances. I'm hoping he'll be at Star Trek Las Vegas this year, but he's not been announced yet.

Perhaps Creation, the convention organisers, might be worth emailing?

Other than that, the various fan films seem to be in regular contact with former TOS actors -- perhaps they could help?

Have you checked to see if he has a facebook account?

Thanks for the Facebook lead but I couldn't find anything. I'm sure whoever reads this thread also reads the movie threads too and they would have commented. Maybe someone in the future will run across this thread and have an answer. Thanks-

There is a Facebook account to have him put in the Science Fiction hall of fame.

Re: Contact Info For John Winston/Mr. Kyle

From way way back, and probably no help but -- I remember a thread a good ten or twelve years ago in which a poster asserted that Mr. Winston was his barber. I'm sure he (Winston) has retired by now...

Ahh, yeah, I (vaguely) remember that as well -- I recall he was Gene Coon's barber, and/or years later someone associated with TWOK had their hair cut by him leading to his casting in that film.
