Fred McFeely Rogers
March 20, 1928 February 27, 2003

Few television personalities have touched people like Mister Rogers. Fred Rogers was born in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, the town made famous by golfer Arnold Palmer. Mister Rogers was an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, but his real ministry was to children through public television.
On Mister Rogers Neighborhood, Fred was the voice behind King Friday XIII, Queen Sara Saturday, Curious X the Owl, Henrietta Pussycat, Daniel Striped Tiger, Donkey Hodie and Lady Elaine Fairchild. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood won 4 Emmy awards and Fred Rogers received 1 Emmy for Lifetime Achievement.
