Actor, Son of cowboy entertainer Will Rogers. He was the third son and was born while his father was performing on the Broadway stage. When Will Rogers became a movie star, the family moved to California.

Like his father, he was a expert horseman and was also a three-goal Polo player. In his later years he was a cattle, horse rancher and curator to his fatherís west coast estate the Will Rogers State Historic Park, Santa Monica, California.
