Rest in Peace, Wayne Rogers

Wayne Rogers, best known for his role as Dr. "Trapper" John McIntyre on the television series M*A*S*H has passed away at age 82.

Mr. Rogers was born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1933 and attended Princeton University where he majored in history. He enlisted in the Navy and became an actor afterwards, starring in numerous television westerns. It would be M*A*S*H, however, that would make him a household name.

He would impulsively leave the show after the third season and his career never fully recovered. In his later years, he became an investment advisor, though he continued to book roles on television.
