Biographical history

Edward S. Rogers was born in Vermont (1923) and received his PhD from New Mexico in 1958, but spent almost all of his working life in Canada, devoting himself to the study of Canada's aboriginal peoples. As Chief of the Department of Ethnography at Toronot's Royal Ontario Museum from 1959/1960, he was acknowledged as a leading authority on Canada's northern Cree, and was the author of dozens of books, articles, pamphlets and films. During 1965-1970 he taught part-time at Toronto and from 1970 on at McMaster University. His focus for his studies was the subsistence patterns and ecology of the Algonkin peoples of sub-arctic eastern Canada. His relationship with the Ojibway and Cree was much more than that of an ethnologist, he was also a friend and associate. Rogers is buried in the Weagamow Lake Indian Reserve Cemetery; the only outsider and non-Indian accorded this privilege. His wife is the anthropologist Mary Black-Rogers, who conducted joint research with Ed Rogers.
