Carl ‘Alfalfa’ Switzer
[Carl 'Alfalfa' Switzer]
August 7, 1927 - January 21, 1959
Child actor, Carl Dean Switzer, appeared in the Our Gang short subjects films between 1937 and 1940, as "Alfalfa," one of the series' most popular and best-remembered characters. The popular shorts were later released on television as The Little Rascals. As an adult, he had few, minor, film roles, and he later became a dog breeder and hunting guide.
In January 1959, he was fatally shot by an acquaintance in a dispute over money.
Switzer's grave marker, at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, California, displays two square and compasses emblems, and he is widely reported to have been encouraged to join Freemasonry by his friend, Roy Rogers, who was a member of Hollywood Lodge No. 355. His membership and degree dates have not been confirmed.
