Short biography
Answers.com: The daughter of a San Francisco criminal lawyer who was good friends with publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, Adela Rogers got her first job at age 19 working as a cub reporter for Hearst's San Francisco Examiner. She eventually rose to become one of the paper's ace reporters and was on hand for some of her era's biggest stories. She also worked closely with the influential Photoplay magazine and was once hailed as "Mother Confessor of Hollywood." She worked at MGM for a time as a story consultant and script doctor. Some of her stories served as the basis for other studios' films. She became Adela Rogers St. Johns when she married Ivan (Ike) St. Johns in 1913 -- the couple had two children.
