Bogard was born in San Francisco, California. She played the role of "Tomboy Taylor"[1] in Fontaine Fox's Mickey McGuire film series from 1927 to 1933.[2] After departing from the series, she became a dancer for stage and screen appearances.

In March 1939, Bogard, while on the campus of Los Angeles City College, was attacked with a piece of wood by DeWitt Clinton Cook.[3] Luckily, Delia survived the attack. The culprit was executed in the San Quentin gas chamber in January 1941.[2][4]

In 1945, Bogard made a guest appearance as herself in the film Mickey the Great, a feature compilation of the Mickey McGuire short films, which paid tribute to the old Mickey McGuire series. She died in 1995 at age 74.
