This postcard shows the statue of Will Rogers riding his horse, Soapsuds, in his home in Santa Monica, California. The statue was carved and designed by Tex Wheeler. Will Rogers (1879-1935) was a Cherokee stage and film actor, humorist, newspaper columnist, and social commentator. He began his career as a trick roper and eventually made his way into the film industry as an actor. His film debut was in 1918 for the movie, Laughing Bill Hyde. Rogers's career only skyrocketed to success from there as he appeared in many movies, both silent and with sound, and also ventured into other media. Rogers contributed articles as a columnist in several publications, including the New York Times and the Saturday Evening Post, and also made radio broadcasts. Rogers was not only successful but also popular with the American public. He was admired by many for his personality, sense of humor, and his pithy and witty sayings. Hughlette "Tex" Wheeler (1901-1954) was an American sculptor from Florida. His talent for sculpting was recognized and he won a scholarship to study sculpture in Paris. After returning to the United States, Wheeler opened a studio in Cleveland, Ohio. He also worked in Arizona and southern California. Wheeler became well-known for his bronze statues depicting subjects of the American West such as cowboys, miners, and broncos. His works were cast by a number of foundries including Roman Bronze Works, the Gorman Manufacturing Company, Valsuani Foundry, Antioch Art Foundry, Antioch College, California Art Bronze, and Nelli Art Bronze Works.
