One note about Mary E. Rogers, our wondrous mother, sense their
marriage on December 30, 1945 she worked right along side Warren in total
support of all his activities.
However, the first order of business is to contact
any and all persons who can help us to fill
in the information gaps, about Mary and Warren Rogers, so
we may complete the autobiography, he was writing just before his death.
His autobiography/biography will have a section devoted to those who have
interesting stories about either Mary or Warren.
We know there are thousands of people our parents helped with their adventures on the PCT. Or, maybe his adventures with the YMCA at Alhambra, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, Portland, or Seattle. Or, knew of their life long friendship with the late Bishop Donald H. Tippet. If you would like to contribute to this labor of love, please feel free to contact us at either of the below addresses.
