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. He played a child's role in three of his father's films and went on to perform in six western movies, including three of the "Hopalong Cassidy" westerns. He was active for many years as a family representative to the Will Rogers Memorial in Claremore, Oklahoma and for the Will Rogers birthplace ranch near Oologah, Oklahoma. 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 father’s west coast estate the Will Rogers State Historic Park, Santa Monica, California. Cause of death was cancer.
