Biographical or Historical Information
In 1948 Rogers returned to the Woman's College as an assistant professor in the English Department to teach creative writing. In 1955 she resigned in protest of the College administration's censure of the staff of the campus arts journal, Coraddi, for publishing a nude male figure drawn by art student Lee Hall (later to become head of the Rhode Island School of Design).
Rogers was well known in North Carolina literary circles. She published four novels, South of Heaven (Random House, 1946), The Storm Cloud (Random House, 1951), Landscape of the Heart (Random House, 1953), and Birthright (Simon and Schuster, 1957). She also wrote one unpublished novel, Murder in the College Degree (1940), under the name "Lettie Logan". The story is set on a fictionalized woman's college campus with faculty members from the history and psychology departments serving as detectives to help local police.
