Gerald Patrick “Jerry” Mathers (created June 2, 1948) is an American television, film, and stage performer. Mathers is famous for his role in the television sitcom series “Leave It to Beaver” (1957–1963), where he played Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver, the younger son of archetypal suburban couple June and Ward Cleaver (played by Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont), and the brother of Wally Cleaver (played by Tony Dow).
As he moved into his teen years, Mathers retired from performing to concentrate on high school. He attended Notre Dame High School, in Sherman Oaks, California. While he was still in high school, Mathers joined the Air Force Reserve. He appeared as a presenter at the 1967 Emmy Awards ceremony in his dress uniform. After graduating high school in 1967, Mathers continued to serve in the Military Reserve and made the rank of Sergeant. In December 1969, a rumor began that Mathers was killed in action in the Vietnam War. Though the origin of the gossip is cloudy, Mathers never saw action and was never stationed outside of the USA. Years after, in 1980, Mathers and Dow appeared with Bill Murray on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update segment, making fun of the Vietnam War passing rumor. He then was employed as a commercial loan officer at a bank before using well-invested savings from his acting career, which started at $500 a week, to begin a career in real-estate development. In 1978, he reentered the entertainment industry. That year, he and Tony Dow starred in the play Boeing, Boeing which ran for ten weeks in Kansas City. Mathers and Dow then toured the dinner theater circuit in a creation of So Long, Stanley for 18 months. In 1981, he was employed as a disc jockey at KEZY AM radio in Anaheim, California. In 1983, Mathers reprised his character in the television reunion movie Still the Beaver, which likewise featured the bulk of the initial Leave It to Beaver cast. The success of the television film caused the creation of a sequel series of precisely the same name. The show started airing on the Disney Channel in 1984, then went on to be picked up by TBS and broadcast syndication, where it had been retitled The New Leave It to Beaver and ran until 1989.
