"Tom Selleck, the actor best known as Magnum P.I., is taking on a new role. With his father and two brothers, he is planning to demolish an old General Motors plant in the San Fernando Valley that closed in 1992 and build a $100 million shopping complex."
"Their goal, The Associated Press reported yesterday, is to transform the site, in a crime-ridden neighborhood of Van Nuys, Calif., into a bustling center with stores, theaters, restaurants and industrial space."
"'Maybe we can change some of the personality of the neighborhood,' Mr. Selleck said. 'We're not in business just for civic purposes. But the valley is where we grew up, and with all of Dad's experience in the valley, it seemed a good fit.'"
--From The New York Times, February 13, 1996.
Received an honorary degree from Pepperdine University in April 2000.
