Dr. Mary Black Rogers is an ethnographer and ethnohistorian, and a major contributor to Algonquian studies. She combined intensive fieldwork, linguistic analysis, and archival research as a scholar of the Ojibwa people. With her husband, Edward Sylvester Rogers, they collected data, both contemporary in the Round Lake community, and historical in repositories such as the Hudson's Bay Archives, to produce orignal ethnographic research for a core area of Northwestern Ontario. The Rogers/Black research team produced a unique record of a cultural pattern moving rapidly to extinction. Edward Rogers died in 1988, and Mary Black-Rogers continued her research through the mid-1990s. She is retired and now residing (as of 2007) in Minneapolis.
