Remembering John Rogers by Rod Boane '56:
“I was sad to read about the passing of Dr. John Rogers.  I had the good fortune to be in the first geology class to study under him from 1954-56.  He was my favorite geology professor because he gave very well organized lectures and conveyed an excitement about earth science that convinced me to learn all that I could about the earth.  I parlayed my degree in geology into a 36-year career with Exxon.”
