Herbert Henry Rice
Birth: 1888
Death: Jul., 1938

Actor. He is best remembered for being one of the three midgets who played the role of the character of Buster Brown. The famous, wide-eyed character who was popular between 1904 and 1930 was named for comedian Buster Keaton and the Brown Shoe Company. Together with his dog Tige, Brown was often featured in comic strips, used in stage shows, and for commercial use. Rice later left the role behind to become involved cabaret and films. His stage work led him to become a close associate of George M. Cohan, while his film work introduced him to the likes of Lon Chaney. His film credits include, "Pour Finney" (1912), "The Two Chefs" (1912), "The Rainbow Princess" (1916), "Snow White" (1916), and "Alice In Wonderland" (1915), in which he played the White Rabbit. Rice who was only 50 inches tall, spent the rest of his life living in poverty. His funeral was paid for by the Actors Fund of America. (bio by: K)
