Description:
A photo of Fred McFeely Rogers in one of his trademark sweaters. (One of his sweaters is in the Smithsonian Museum.)

Fred was an American television personality, musician, puppeteer, writer, producer, and Presbyterian minister (he made sure until his death that his ordination was up to date). Rogers was famous for creating, hosting and composing the theme music for the educational preschool television series Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (1968–2001), which featured his kind-hearted grandfatherly personality, and for his direct connection to his audience.

33 years on the same television show! How many children learned kindness from him?

Today is "National Kindness Day". To me, Mr Rogers was the ambassador of kindness so what better way to celebrate than with his photo and biography?
