Kenneth Olin Maynard (July 21, 1895 – March 23, 1973) was an American motion picture stuntman and actor.
He appeared in more than 90 films over 20 years with his white cowboy hat, fancy shirt, and a pair of six-shooters.
Maynard was born in Vevay, Indiana, one of five children, another of whom, his lookalike younger brother, Kermit, would also become an actor; most audience members assumed that Kermit was his brother’s identical twin. Ken Maynard began working at carnivals and circuses, where he became an accomplished horseman. As a young man, he performed in rodeos and was a trick rider with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
Maynard served in the United States Army during World War I. After the war, Maynard returned to show business as a circus rider with Ringling Brothers. When the circus was playing in Los Angeles, California, actor Buck Jones encouraged Maynard to try working in the movies. Maynard soon had a contract with Fox Studios.
