gINGER rOGERS

Stage Name

Birth Name

Ginger Rogers Virginia Katherine McMath

    Many people thought of Ginger as hailing from Texas, however she was from Independence, Missouri. Her father was William Eddins McMath and her mother was Lela Owens McMath. Ginger arrived in Hollywood in 1931 and would play a sixteen year old flapper opposite Claudette Colbert. She would later receive an Oscar award for her role in Kitty Foyle. Ginger's main claim to fame was with dancer Fred Astaire, however, she would make many movies over time with many different actors/ dancers. She was a very talented actress.

     Ginger got her career start by winning the Texas State Charleston dance contest finals ( Her second year attempt) on November 9th, 1925 at the Baker Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Her prize was a medal and a four week engagement on the Interstate Circuit ( Vaudeville.) She was billed as "Ginger and the Redheads" and later "Ginger and Pepper" ( With Jack Culpepper.)
