Ginger Rogers Litter Notes

Tribute to Ginger Rogers

Ginger Rogers: VIRGINIA KATHERINE MCMATH was born on July 16, 1911 in Independence, Missouri. Her mother, Lela Owens McMath had recently separated from Virginia's father, Eddins McMath, and brought Virginia up with the help of her parents, Walter and Saphrona Owens of Kansas City. The separation was not a pleasant one, and Virginia's father twice kidnapped her (once when she was less than a year old and again two years later) during a custody dispute with Lela. Finally the two divorced and young Virginia went to live with her grandparents in Kansas City while her mother worked for two years in Hollywood writing screenplays, and later in New York City where Virginia joined her for a time. Also living with her grandparents in Kansas City were several of Virginia's cousins, one of whom couldn't pronounce her name and called her "Jinja." Needless to say, it stuck.

In 1920, Ginger's mother married insurance salesman John Logan Rogers and the family of three moved to Fort Worth, Texas. Though she was never formally adopted, Ginger took her step-father's name. While the freckle-faced young tomboy went to school, her mother took a job as a theatre critic for the Fort Worth Record. Ginger's early career aspirations included being a school teacher, but the exposure to the theatre which resulted from her mother's work altered this path. She began to learn songs and dances from the performers as she hung around backstage at the Majestic Theater, waiting for her mother.

Though Ginger had acted in school plays, her professional career began one night when the famous vaudeville dancing team of Eddie Foy and his children needed a substitute, and Ginger, who had learned the Charleston backstage from Eddie Foy, Jr., filled in. The Charleston became Ginger's key to stardom. In 1925 at the age of 14, she entered and won a Texas state Charleston contest. The prize was a contract for a four-week vaudeville tour. With her mother at her side, Ginger and her Redheads (as the act was called) turned four weeks into twenty-one, and even after the act broke up and the Rogers returned to Fort Worth, they weren't out of the business for long. Ginger spent the next four years with her mother, touring vaudeville circuits.
