Biography

Warner Leroy Baxter was born on March 29, 1889 in Columbus, Ohio to Edwin and Jane (Barrett) Baxter. Warner's father died on September 16, 1889, and so not only was he an only child, but he was also raised by his mother and various other members of his family. He was married twice: first to Viola Caldwell from 1911 to 1913 when they divorced, and then to Winifred Bryson from 1918 until his death in 1951. Based on available information, he and his two wives never had any children together.

He won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1930 while starring as the The Cisco Kid in Old Arizona (1929). He was the first American to win the award.

He died in 1951 due to complications from pneumonia at the age of 62. He is interred in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
