At the conclusion of his business education Mr. Rogers affiliated himself with Samuel Bailey, an insurance broker of this city, with whom he acquired a knowledge of the business and after a time branched out for himself representing the German, Buffalo and American Insurance Companies in addition to a number of others.

For ten years he was associated with the I.O.O.F., but later severed his connection with the organization. In politics Mr. Rogers was a Democrat. For a number of years he and his family resided on Bellevue Avenue, near Prospect Street, and later lived on West State Street, near Overbrook Avenue.

While a resident of the Thirteenth Ward Mr. Rogers, at the insistence of his friends, was twice a candidate on the Democratic ticket for Councilman.
