In full: "Dear Mr. Axelrod: Thank you for your letter describing the new addition you are planning for your museum. I am not able to send you anything at the pre-sent time but will do so within the next few weeks. We have several charity events taking place at our home this month and the first part of September so I am sure you can understand why I do not have time to devote to finding some article for your museum until after these affairs. Your museum sounds like a very worthwhile instit-ution and I like the fact that there is no admiss-ion charge so it is available to everyone. Good luck and you will be hearing from me soon. Sincerely, Chas Buddy Rogers CBR/ek". Lightly creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by: Original mailing envelope.

Rogers (1904-1999) played with a California-based swing band in the 1930s, but was better known for his films. He debuted in the silent film Wings (1927), which won the first-ever Oscar as best picture. That same year the actor who would be known at the peak of his popularity as "America's Boyfriend" was paired with "America's Sweetheart", Mary Pickford, in My Best Girl. In 1937, Rogers became Pickford's third and last husband. In later years he would often act as spokesman for his increasingly reclusive wife. His other films include Abie's Irish Rose (1928), Young Eagles (1930), Golden Hoofs (1941) and his last starring role, An Innocent Affair (1948).
