Popular American entertainer (1879–1935) who cultivated an image as a wisecracking cowboy and earned worldwide renown for his mordant wit and skill at rope tricks. After a successful vaudeville career, including a stint as the one of the star attractions of the Ziegfeld Follies, Rogers made an easy transition to films and became one of the top box-office draws of the late 1920s and early 1930s. His career came to an untimely end when he died in a plane crash in Alaska along with pilot Wiley Post. Air mail commemorative cover, with a cachet honoring the dedication of the Will Rogers airport on July 14, 1931, signed vertically in fountain pen along the left side. In fine condition, with a mild overall shade of toning, and a few creases to center, not affecting signature. R&R COA.
