Aldrich Bowker (January 1, 1875 – March 21, 1947) was an American stage- and film actor.[citation needed]


Bowker was born in Ashby, Massachusetts.[1] He graduated from Fitchburg High School.[2] His debut came in Boston in a stage adaptation of The Christian, by Hall Caine.[3]

He was a long-time stage performer in Chicago and Cincinnati, and in summer stock at amusement park Whalom Park in Lunenburg, Massachusetts. Bowker was a pioneer in "open air" theatre at Whalom Park and at his summer home in Ashburnham, where other performers were frequent guests, including Ainsworth Arnold and Bette Davis.[citation needed]

Between 1912 and 1938 he was active on Broadway. Notable stage plays he performed in were The High Road (1912), A Night in Avignon (1919), You Can't Take It With You (1936) and 200 Were Chosen (1936).[4]

Between 1939 and 1942 he appeared in about 25 films,[citation needed] including Ball of Fire (1941).[5]

Bowker died at Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino, California, from arteriosclerosis and senility.[6]
