    Ginger Rogers
(Virginia Katherine McMath;
July 16, 1911 – April 25, 1995)

Ginger Rogers made her performing debut at age 14, moving on to Vaudeville and
then to Broadway. She arrived in Hollywood in 1931. Her first film, playing opposite Claudette Colbert as a 16 year old flapper, made her a star. She made a total 73
films. Musicals from 1933 to 1939 with RKO including Top Hat and Swing Time
with dance partner Fred Astaire remain classics today.  

When Ginger’s mother died in 1877, she remained at the families Rogue River 
Ranch in Oregon until 1990, when she sold the property and moved to nearby
Medford.
