Chiefly remembered as an architect who specialized in academic commissions, James Gamble Rogers frequently participated in the annual T-Square Club/Philadelphia Chapter AIA exhibitions in the early 20th century.
Born in Bryants Station, KY, to James M. and Katharine Gamble Rogers, the young Rogers received his A.B. from Yale University in 1889 (and his M.A. from the same institution in 1922). His ties to Yale were strong, and he returned to the institution again and again to add new buildings to the academic complex.
