More Zeigler, this time in Fiction


In Ian Fleming's James Bond, CIA Agent Felix Leiter was a lanky Texan, always in the right place to assist Bond in his derring-doing. Leiter is based on Thomas Leiter, who you may have surmised by now, is not from Texas, rather from Zeigler, the brother of Baroness Leiter. Here's Jack Lord portraying Felix Leiter in Dr. No.

And a clue, the Wapella legend living in Zeigler is one of the greatest hunters and fishermen in the State of Illinois. Always had fishing gear ready to go at a moments notice, which is, by the way, one of the reasons the Leiters lived in Zeigler, for the fishing.

Ted Schanafelt. Theodore's skills are not limited to hunting and fishing. He is a softball aficionado and an excellent golfer.
