Will Rogers Statue, Memorial Hall, Claremore, Oklahoma

This image shows the same statue as in the previous post, but with the setting included. The detail on the face and the pedestal are harder to determine, thus the reason for the more heavily retouched version.

The L.L. Cook Co., Milwaukee, WI

There is no description on the back of this card.

Rogers death in 1935 was untimely. He was traveling with the famous pilot Wiley Post in Barrow, Alaska, when, on 15 August 1935 their plane crashed attempting to take off, killing them both.

This card likely dates from the 1940s.
