Last Known Activity

Harry Sherman Bonner appeared in the Our Gang shorts from 1927 until 1929, acting under the name of Harry Spears. You could pick him out in the scenes by his trademark tophat. After leaving the cast, if people recognized him on the street, he would deny being the former child actor.

YNC Bonner served in the US Navy from 1942 until 1960 or after. His service during WWII can be traced by the Navy muster rolls; however, his service after 1948 is unknown. The last mention of him being in the service was a newspaper article about a fishing tournament in July 1960 at which time he was stationed in California - the article doesn't mention at what duty station.
