Born in 1886 in Lewiston, Idaho, Chase signed for his first film role in 1915 and starred in about 45 films. In 1916, he signed a long-term contract with the Morosco-Pallas company.[1]

Chase often was cast as a villain in Westerns, sometimes being billed as Bud Chase. As a supporting player with Fox and other studios, he made the transition to sound films. He had been a cartoonist for a newspaper in Chicago and had performed in vaudeville.[2]

Chase died on April 25, 1937, a week after he became paralyzed,[3] in Sawtelle, California.
