He played the laconic rancher with no name on the revolutionary NBC series.
Among Westerns, only 'Gunsmoke' and 'Bonanza' lasted longer.
James Drury, who starred as the no-name, no-nonsense foreman of the Shiloh Ranch on The Virginian, one of the longest-running Westerns in the history of television, died Monday of natural causes. He was 85.
Drury died at his home in Houston, Texas.

Sorry to hear this. Around 1970-ish, James did a meet and greet at our school. I had no idea then - or now - why he came to a tiny, out of the way town in northern Michigan, but it was cool to see The Virginian in person.
