Is there a reference for him being listed as Native-American. The CBZ link indicates he was Scotch-Irish.--Matt Tegen 16:09, 7 Apr 2006 (CDT)

Matt, I came across that information in a newspaper some long time ago. Remind me to find that source again. In the meantime, that "White Hope" article in the March 1930 The Ring, as reprinted in the 1996 book The Best of the Ring (available in the King County Library System, where I got it, and which I am using now for my current Wiki contributions), confirms his Native American heritage. The article presents a number of paragraphs describing how McCarty went looking for his father, White Eagle, an Indian Medicine Man. --Ric 18:02, 7 Apr 2006 (CDT)
