Rod Cameron
Birth: Dec. 7, 1910
Calgary Census Division
Alberta, Canada
Death: Dec. 21, 1983
Hall County
Georgia, USA

Actor. Born Nathan Roderick Cox, he worked in construction, before entering the entertainment industry, where his tall and athletic build (similar to Randolph Scott) initially lent himself as a stuntman for Fred MacMurray in the pictures "Rangers of Fortune" (1940) and "The Forest Rangers" (1940). Gradually, acting roles were found, as he amassed scores of credits (particularly in Westerns), in low-budget and mid-range pictures, among them "Renegades of the Rio Grande" (1945), "Stage to Tucson" (1950) and "Wagons West" (1952). Cameron will probably be best remembered for his string of TV roles on the programs "City Detective" (1953 to 1955) as Lieutenant Bart Grant, "State Trooper" (1956 to 1959) as Rod Blake, and "Coronado 9" (1959 to 1961) as Dan Adams. He remained actively performing in films and guest roles on TV until the late 1970s. He died from a stroke. (bio by: C.S.)
