Question: On Gunsmoke, Milburn Stone was always known as "Doc" Adams. I say he had a name (Galen) but my friend says he was just "Doc." Please tell us who is correct. Thanks. — Lynn, Fairfield, Calif.

Televisionary: You are. Doc, the only major character besides Marshall Matt Dillon (James Arness) to stay on the CBS show for its entire 1955-75 run, was indeed named Galen.
