Description: 

Charles "Buddy" Rogers was born in Olathe, Kansas. He was a student at the University of Kansas with plans to become a band leader. While his dream of becoming a band leader did not come to fruition, he became a performer nonetheless. Rogers moved to Hollywood and became an actor. He performed in more than 40 films including the World War I silent film, "Wings", winner of the first best-picture Oscar in 1929. The talented musician performed with his own jazz band in some films. Rogers was also famous for his 42-year marriage to Mary Pickford and philanthropic work that earned him the Jean Hershold Humanitarian Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1985. Rogers is pictured here in a three-quarter, off-center seated pose. His bemused expression fits the familiarity of his nickname,"Buddy."
