Casson Ferguson (May 29, 1891 – February 12, 1929) was an American film actor of the silent era.[1] He appeared in more than 50 films between 1917 and 1928.

His father was John J. Ferguson, a jeweler in Alexandria, Louisiana. Early in his career Casson was a member of the Mantel Shakespeare Players in New Orleans before moving to California to pursue a movie career, first with the Seelig Company, then as a leading man. In 1928 he toured Europe and performed as a singer and actor in London and Paris. Returning to California, he married Catherine Mallon. Not long after he died of pneumonia at the age of 38; two days later his wife Catherine also died of pneumonia, and her mother soon died of pneumonia.[2]
