Frank P. Rogers was born in Flint, Michigan in 1875. He moved to Ohio as a child and later attended The Ohio State University, from which he graduated in 1899. Rogers' wife, Florence (Harvey) Rogers also attended Ohio State; the couple resided at 1972 Tremont Road. In 1919, Mrs. Rogers was elected president of the Norwester Women's Club, an Upper Arlington organization dedicated to promoting community fellowship, study, and recreation. Mr. Rogers made his living in the wholesale lumber business. After the village of Upper Arlington was incorporated on March 20, 1918, Frank Rogers was named one of six Village Commissioners. At the first town meeting, Mr. Rogers was appointed to serve on a five-member committee responsible for the reappraisal of property and buildings in Upper Arlington. As village commissioner, he was involved in the creation of the first charter for the government of Upper Arlington. In addition to his work in the local government, Mr. Rogers was a (thirty-second degree) Mason. He was also known among his Upper Arlington neighbors as an expert fisherman and was an enthusiastic member of the Upper Arlington Fishing Club, established in 1917.
