Thanks for adding this Old Fart. When I posted news of his death today there was no more information than that he had died.

I'm a big believer in traveler's checks. So were my parents. Mr. Malden helped convince me. I buy them all the time before I go on trips. Now many restaurants and hotels do not accept traveler's checks--especially in Canada. Some waiters/waitresses/hotel clerks give me strange looks when I attempt to use them.

Interesting Fact...Karl Malden's real name was Mladen Segulovich (Croatian I think). On one of the desks in the series Streets of San Francisco there was a nameplate for a Sgt. Segulovich.
