Abstract:

Between 1922 and 1935, Americans in need of a good laugh turned to their newspapers for the homespun humor of Will Rogers. A former cowboy who parlayed his impressive skill at rope tricks into a popular vaudeville act, Rogers became so well known for the short, pithy wisecracks of his stage routine that he landed a spot in Broadway's Ziegfeld Follies music and comedy revue and eventually starred in more than fifty films. His entertaining newspaper column, a weekly dishing-out of satirical quips and commentary, was so popular it was syndicated in over 500 publications that reached millions of readers.
