Sugar Dawn (born Mervelyn Sugar Steinberg on 14 November 1931 in San Francisco) is an American former child actress in Western films during the 1940s. She appeared in movies with some famous Western film stars like Tex Ritter and Tom Keene. She was a trick rider too, and her pony was called Chiquita. She is an actress, known for Riding the Sunset Trail (1941), Wanderers of the West (1941) and Pals of the Silver Sage (1940). "I did bond rallies and traveled with a captured Japanese sub, appeared at hospital wards, did many exhibitions and competitions at rodeos, and rode in the Rose Parade in '41. The hospital visits were very unique. I'd take my pony to the hospital, put rubber shoes on Chiquita, and go into the wards where the more critical children would be. We would perform for them and outside we could do more, tricks and things, for the kids who could come. I didn't ride inside, of course, but I performed tricks with Chiquita even after I was too big to ride on her." She was previously married to Loren Tower.

Sent her 2 photos on 5 Feb and got them back signed on 16 May.. She also included a letter saying the reason it took so long was because her and her husband had been traveling.. Also said that she does not live at the Menlo Park address anymore but 3 1/2 hours away.. However, she has relatives living at her old address.. She did send a signed B/W photo of her with Chiquita her pony..
