Mr. Rodgers was educated in the public schools of Springfield and then attended the Lawrenceville Academy in New Jersey, which is a preparatory school for Princton University, which he later attended.
After leaving Princeton, Mr. Rodgers went to Kansas City, Kan., where he was employed for a number of years as a feature writer on the Kansas City Star. It was while a member of the editorial staff of that paper that he made the acquaintance of such celebrities as O. O. McIntyre and James Whitcomb Riley, the Hoosier poet.
Some years ago, when Will Rogers, the writer and radio and motion picture star, visited Springfield, Mr. Rodgers escorted him about the city and the two became firm friends.
After leaving the Kansas City Star, Mr. Rodgers went to New York, where he did feature work on the New York World. HIs newspaper work also included affiliation with the old Daily Press Republic as a reporter.
The body was taken to the Herr and Craver Funeral Parlors. Complete funeral arrangements will not be made until the arrival of the son from Annapolis.
