Helen Rogers, the youngest of eleven children of Benjamin Talbot Rogers and Sarah Johnson Rogers, was born in Appleton, Wisconsin, on 23rd November, 1882. She graduated from Barnard College, in 1903 and became the social secretary to the wife of Whitelaw Reid. She went to London with the family when Reid became ambassador to Great Britain.

In 1911 Helen married Ogden Mills Reid, the son of Whitelaw Reid. The following year his father died and he inherited New York Herald Tribune. Ogden had a serious drink problem and by 1922 Helen had effective control of the newspaper.

Jennet Conant, the author of The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington (2008) argues that Ernest Cuneo, who worked for British Security Coordination, was "empowered to feed select British intelligence items about Nazi sympathizers and subversives" to friendly journalists such as her son, Whitelaw Reid who "were stealth operatives in their campaign against Britain's enemies in America". Cuneo also worked closely with editors and publishers who were supporters of American intervention into the Second World War. This included Helen Rogers Reid and the New York Herald Tribune.

According to Anthony Cave-Brown, the author of C: The Secret Life of Sir Stewart Graham Menzies,Spymaster to Winston Churchill (1988), Stewart Menzies was a family friend of Reid. Thomas E. Mahl has argued in Desperate Deception: British Covert Operations in the United States, 1939-44 (1998): "No newspaper in the United States was more useful to British intelligence during World War II than the Herald Tribune. A description of BSC's work with the Herald Tribune fills a dozen pages of the secret BSC Account".

Helen Rogers Reid died on 27th July, 1970.

Helen Rogers parried Whitelaw's son, Ogden Mills Reid, in 1911. Mrs. Reid had effective control of the paper not only because she was a strong-willed and talented woman but because her husband, Ogden Mills Reid, had a drinking problem... No newspaper in the United States was more useful to British intelligence during World War II than the Herald Tribune.

Whitelaw Reid, Heir to New York Herald Tribune, Dies at 95

Whitelaw Reid, the scion of a prominent New York publishing family who joined The New York Herald Tribune in the late 1930s, became a war correspondent and later the paper’s editor, president and chairman, died on Saturday at White Plains Hospital Center. He was 95 and lived in Bedford Hills, N.Y.

The cause was complications of lung and heart failure, said his brother, Ogden R. Reid, the former congressman and ambassador to Israel, who was an editor and publisher of The Herald Tribune.

Although he had long been retired, Whitelaw Reid, an adventurer who had flown planes and sailed yachts, was in relatively good health most of his life. He had been a skier, a swimmer and a horseback rider, and he was a competitive tennis player into his 90s, winning United States Tennis Association tournaments and earning national rankings among senior players.

Known as Whitey, he was the namesake and grandson of Whitelaw Reid, who succeeded Horace Greeley as owner and editor of The New York Tribune in the 1870s and was later ambassador to France and Great Britain. He was also the son of Ogden Mills Reid, who merged The Tribune and The Herald in 1924 and for many years was editor and publisher of the paper and its European edition, known as the Paris Herald, now The International Herald Tribune and owned by The New York Times Company.

Groomed for a newspaper life, Mr. Reid, two years out of Yale, joined The Herald Tribune in 1938 in the mechanical department, and later worked in the business section. In 1940, he became a reporter and soon joined the paper’s London bureau. Over the next year, he filed dramatic eyewitness accounts of the London blitz and the German shelling of Dover flew with Royal Air Force aviators on missions over the Continent and patrolled the English Channel aboard a trawler searching for enemy invaders.

In 1941, he was commissioned a United States Navy aviator. For much of World War II, he ferried Navy planes around the United States, but in 1945 piloted a four-motor bomber across the Pacific and joined a squadron on Iwo Jima that surveyed Japan’s coasts for bombing raids in the final stages of the war.

In 1946, he returned to The Herald Tribune as assistant to the editor. Upon the death of his father in 1947, he became editor and vice president. From 1953 to 1955, he was editor and president, and from 1955 to 1958 was chairman. His mother, Helen Rogers Reid, was president from 1947 to 1953 and chairman from 1953 to 1955, and was known as a dominant figure at the paper in those years.

During Whitelaw Reid’s tenure, circulation was raised substantially. But despite some illustrious writers and columnists, The Herald Tribune, long known for independent Republican traditions and, journalistically, as a newspaperman’s newspaper, went into decline. Staff members said that its high standards gave way to puzzle contests and other gimmicks to raise circulation.

In 1958, the Reid family sold control to John Hay Whitney, the American ambassador to Britain, who redesigned the paper and hired talented new writers. But caught in a series of strikes and other reverses, the newspaper was merged in 1966 with other troubled publications into an amalgam called The World Journal Tribune, which folded in 1967.

For many years, Mr. Reid had been president of The Herald Tribune’s Fresh Air Fund, which provided underprivileged city children with summer vacations in the country. The New York Times took over sponsorship of the program after The Herald Tribune died.

After leaving the newspaper, Mr. Reid founded Reid Enterprises, a company that sold food and other products, and was its president until 1975.

In recent years, he devoted much of his time to environmental causes, and to tennis. In 1998, he won the national indoor singles championship for men 85 and older and was ranked fourth in the nation among those players. In 2003, he won the national clay court doubles championship for men in their 90s.

Whitelaw Reid was born on July 26, 1913, on the family’s estate, Ophir Hall, in Purchase, N.Y. He attended Lincoln School in New York and St. Paul’s School in Concord, N.H., and graduated from Yale in 1936 with a degree in sociology. With a half dozen college classmates, he sailed a small schooner from Norway to the United States.

After a course in printing at what is now the Rochester Institute of Technology, and training in the operation of Mergenthaler Linotype machines, he joined his father’s newspaper.


Mrs. Helen Rogers Reid, for mer president of The New York Herald Tribune, died of arterio sclerosis yesterday at her home, 834 Fifth Avenue.

Mrs. Reid, who was 87 years old, was the widow of Ogden Reid, president of The Herald Tribune until his death in 1947.

In her 37 years on The Her ald Tribune and its predecessor, The Tribune, Mrs. Reid was an unflamboyant but powerful force in the newspaper world and in the city's civic and social life.

Her business acumen, first displayed as an advertising salesman, and her editorial judgment, in making the paper attractive to women and sub urban readers, helped to trans form The Herald Tribune into a modern newspaper.

Entering journalism as a by product of her marriage to Ogden Mills Reid, Mrs. Reid gradually established herself as a newspaper personality in her own right. (It was Mr. Reid's father, Whitelaw Reid, who acquired The Tribune from Horace Greeley, its founder.) Never overtly aggressive, she won her reputation by quiet tenacity, dowagerlike charm, and a clear and orderly mind.

There was little in Mrs. Reid's appearance to suggest the influence she wielded, nor the force of her character. She stood only an inch over 5 feet and she looked as fragile as piece of expensive china. Her hair, at first brown, then gray and later white, was a fine soft fuzz that curled close to her head. Her large green eyes, however, were alert and prob ing. According to advertising salesmen who dealt with her, they could be quite unnerving.

In dress Mrs. Reid was femi nine but not fancy. Her taste ran to bright colors, with vari ous shades of purple predomi nant. Day in and day out she wore a plain beret‐like hat em bellished with pearls, a diamond clip, sequins, flower petals or feathers.

Although she was pleasant and informal in conversation in the office or at dinner, her talk did not run much to chit chat, and she did not encour age it in others for long. For many years Mrs. Reid included her editors and columnists at luncheons, dinners and week end parties she gave for guests notable in national and world affairs.

A gathering might include a Presidential aspirant, an inter national statesman, a best‐sell ing author, an economist, an editor and a few couples from the Reids' social circle on the upper East Side. With dessert, Mrs. Reid would swizzle a glass of champagne with a piece of melba toast and throw out general question on current affairs.

Diners Summoned to Speak

Going around the table, she would call on the diners, one by one, for their views. Ac cording to one account of these affairs, some gave their opin ions seated, but a number were wont to rise and address Mrs. Reid as though she were a pub lic meeting.

Mrs. Reid's interest in the political and economic forces that shaped the world about her was reflected in the es tablishment, in 1930, of The Herald Tribune's annual Forum on Current Problems. Although the Forum was at first a pro motional device aimed at club women, it was expanded to in clude the public generally.

With Mrs. William Brown Meloney, the Forum director for many years, Mrs. Reid took a hand in choosing and obtain ing prominent speakers, many of them from abroad. She pre sided at the big sessions in the Waldorf‐Astoria, and published the proceedings in a special supplement for high school and college students.

Mrs. Reid's own politics were Republican, but the forums were nonpartisan and dispas sionate presentations of world news and issues. They were discontinued after 1955, for emphasis on the paper's Youth Forum.

At The Herald Tribune Mrs. Reid raised her voice for mod erate Republicanism and for internationalism. In 1952 she supported Dwight D. Eisen hower for the Presidency she had backed Thomas E. Dewey in 1948.

Mrs. Reid was a leader in civic affairs. She served for nine years as chairman of the board of trustees of Barnard College, her alma mater. A dormitory built in 1963 with funds she helped to raise is named for her. She was a trus tee of the Metropolitan Mu seum of Arta She was active in the New York Newspaper women's Club, and she was president of the Reid Founda tion, established by her hus band in 1946 to give fellow ships to journalists for study and travel abroad.

Needy Children Helped

Another of Mrs. Reid's civic interests was her newspaper's Fresh Air Fund, which raises public contributions to send needy children to summer camps and homes in the coun try.

As a society figure Mrs. Reid was far less formidable than her mother‐in‐law, a vigorous matriarch who died in 1931. Mrs. Reid's style in entertain ing was informal—and inde fatigable. There was a constant round of guests at her 15 East 89th Street town house, at a 30‐ room Ophir Cottage in Pur chase, N. Y., at a summer place in the Adirondacks and at hunting lodge in North Caro lina.

To those who sought to as say her career, Mrs. Reid ap peared as a Cinderella who be came Queen Helen. She was born in Appleton, Wis., on Nov. 23, 1882, the youngest of 11 children of Benjamin Talbot Rogers and Sarah Louise John son Rogers. Her father died when she was 3. Although the family was not poverty‐strick en, she was obliged to earn part of her way through board ing school and then through Barnard, which she entered in 1899.

She enrolled to study Latin and Greek and perhaps to be come a teacher, but she shifted her interest to zoology and took her degree in that. She estab lished a reputation among her classmates as a crisp, attrac tive, enterprising girl who could even turn a profit on the senior yearbook. The class poet summed her up in this quatrain:

We love little Helen, her heart is so warm

And if you don't cross her she'll do you no harm.

So don't contradict her, or else if you do

Get under the table and wait till she's through.

In June, 1903, when Helen Rogers received a Bachelor of Arts degree, she heard that Mrs. Whitelaw Reid, one of the city's grande dames, was seeking a social secretary. She applied, was accepted and went to work in the Reids' sumptuous Florentine fortress, on Madison Avenue, across, from St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Mrs. Reid, the daughter of a prominent financier, Darius Ogden Mills, and her husband had been married in 1881. They had a dinner table seat ing 80 people and the wealth to festoon it with elegant vi ands, and Mrs. Reid never lacked for social engagements a secretary to handle this facet of her life had few idle moments.

Married in 1911

Helen Rogers was in Mrs. Reid's employ for eight years, dividing her time between the United States and London, where Whitelaw Reid was Am bassador to the Court of St. James's from 1905 to his death in 1912. During this time she met the Reids' only son, Ogden Mills Reid, fresh out of Yale. The couple were married in Wisconsin March 14. 1911.

Tall, handsome, genial and convivial, Oggie Reid was deep ly interested in swimming, tennis, shooting and sailing— activities in which his wife learned to excel by putting her mind to them.

She at first took only a pass ing interest in The Tribune, which her husband inherited on his father's death. In the first six years of her married life she devoted herself to her chil dren, Whitelaw, Elisabeth, who died in childhood, and Ogden. Her chief outside concern was women's suffrage. She helped raise $500,000 for suffrage campaigns in New York.

“When I was at Barnard, working my way through,” she explained later, “the necessity for complete independence of women was borne in on me.”

Mrs. Reid's newspaper ca reer began in 1918, when she became an advertising solicitor for the palsied Tribune, into which the Reid family was re ported to have poured $15‐mil lion since 1898. “Come down to the office,” Ogden Reid asked his wife, “and work the paper's success out with me.” Within two months she was its adver tising manager, a post she held under slightly different titles on The Herald Tribune until she became its president in 1947.

Immensely loyal to the Reid name and eager to make The Tribune a great, self‐support ing paper, Mrs. Reid channeled enormous energy into advertis ing salesmanship. Between 1918 and 1923 the paper, com peting in the morning field with The Times, The World, The American and The Her ald, more than doubled its lin age.

Then and later she was re lentless in pursuit of space buyers.

“She had the persistence of gravity,” an associate once re marked. She called on adver tisers or had them to lunch eon. Banter, deft flattery and an array of voluminous and precise facts constituted her argurrients.

Advertising Staff Driven

She was as unsparing of the paper's other ad solicitors as she was of herself. “You get so you sneak up the back stairs rather than confess you're not a wonder boy,” a member of her harried but admiring staff once said.

On The Herald Tribune in the nineteen‐thirties and for ties, Mrs. Reid was accustomed to hold advertising staff meet ings on Mondays at 9 A.M. sharp to get an accounting of each salesman's work. At one point she presided from a plat form decorated with a card board apple tree and red card board apples. Each apple rep resented an account the paper was seeking.

She called up the salesmen by turn, and whenever one an nounced a new account she would remove the appropriate cardboard apple from the tree with a ceremonious flourish to the accompaniment of the as semblage's applause.

By means of this and other encouragements to salesman ship, including at one time im promptu choral singing, Mrs. Reid kept the advertising flow ing in. For her doggedness and for her conviction that The Herald Tribune was the fin est advertising medium in the city she was much admired by her sales staff.

Influence on Paper Strong

Mrs. Reid had a pervasive influence on the paper's news and editorial content, although its precise demarcations were a matter of speculation.

One story is that Mrs. Reid once protested to her husband about a news article and that he retorted:

“Helen, will you get the hell back to your department and Tun it while I run mine.”

She is said to have departed meekly.

Mrs. Reid always denied the story. “In the first place,” she once explained to an interview er, “my husband would'nt speak to me that way. In the second, I wouldn't leave meekly. Be sides, nothing like that ever happened.”

Actually, when Mrs. Reid put her mind to it, she usually got her way. One exception was in trying to make the paper dry during Prohibition. On this point her husband was un yielding.

Mrs. Reid's editorial presence was felt especially after The Tribune, at her prompting, ac quired Frank Munsey's Herald in a $5‐million deal in 1924.

Shortly after the purchase, The Herald Tribune moved up town from Nassau Street to quarters at 230 West 41st Street, and began to expand its news coverage and increase its circulation.

Mrs. Reid was generally credited with being responsible for its concentration on the suburban, middle‐class field of circulation. She frequently sug gested story ideas and advised on coverage of others. The pa per devoted, under her stimu lus, much space to the news of gardening and allied inter ests of suburban dwellers and women.

Staff Members Recruited

Mrs. Reid's influence was also reflected in the appoint ment of the late Mrs. Irita Van Doren as editor of Books, the Sunday literary supplement, and of the late Mrs. Meloney as editor of This Week, the Sun day fiction and articles supple ment. She added the late Dor othy Thompson and Walter Lippmann, the commentator, to the staff. She was also re sponsible for the paper's Home Institute, a widely known ex perimental kitchen that de vised and tested recipes for publication.

When Ogden Reid died in 1947 his widow succeeded him as president of The New York Herald Tribune, Inc. She be came chairman of the board of directors in 1953. Her elder son, Whitelaw, who had joined the staff in 1940 and had been named vice president in 1947, succeeded to the presidency.

In 1955, at the age of 72, Mrs. Reid resigned as chairman but continued as a member of the board. Whitelaw succeeded her as chairman, and her other son, Ogden, who had joined the staff in 1950, became presi dent, publisher and editor.

For some time The Herald Tribune had not been gainihg sufficient circulation and ad vertising in a period of rising costs and intense competition. A loan of $2.5‐million from the Massachusetts Life Insurance Company in the fall of 1954 proved insufficient to restore the paper to prosperity. In September of 1957 John Hay Whitney, the financier invest ed $1.2‐million in the paper with an option to buy. He took up the option a year later, leav ing the Reid family with minority interest. Mrs. Reid re tired at that time from the board of directors.

Mr. Whitney ran The Herald Tribune until 1966, when it merged with The Journal American and The New York World‐Telegram and The Sun. The new paper, The World Journal Tribune, expired in May, 1967.

In retirement Mrs. Reid lived quietly in her apartment at 834 Fifth Avenue, entertain ing her friends and members of her family and venturing out socially from time to time.

Many organizations honored Mrs. Reid. In 1935 she received the medal of award of the American Women's Associa tion “for professional achieve ment, public service and per sonality.” The Cuban Red Cross gave her the Comendador Cross of the Order of Honor and Merit.

At the annual dinner of the Hundred Year Association of New York, an organization of business institutions with more than a century of unbroken existence in New York, she was awarded a gold medal in 1946 for services in behalf of the welfare and prestige of the city. The 1949–50 seal of the Council Against Intolerance was presented to her for “out standing service in the cause of tolerance and equality.”

Elected to Arts Academy

She was selected by the edi tors of The Book of Knowl edge as one of 12 women who are “inspiring examples of in telligence and accomplishment.” She was one of four women elected fellows of the Ameri can Academy of Arts and Sci ences in 1950. In 1951 she was listed among 10 notable wo men in industry, communica tions, labor and the professions in New York State.

Mrs. Reid was also the re cipient of a number of hon orary degrees, and she was member of the Colony Club, the Women's City Club, the Wom en's University Club, the New York Newspaperwomen's Club, the River Club.

She is survived by her sons, Whitelaw Reid and United States Representative Ogden Reid of Westchester, and by 10 grandchildren.

A funeral service will be held Thursday at 10 A.M. at St.1 Thomas Episcopal Church, Fifth Avenue and 53d Street.

In a tribute, Governor Rocke feller called Mrs. Reid “a most extraordinary woman.” He cited her “profound and astute in volvement with The Herald Tribune and as a leader in civil rights movement” as well as noting her influence on the Re publican party.

Women’s partners in making history: The men who help power progress

Given all the really bad news lately about the behavior of far too many powerful men, try to imagine this:

It's the end of August 1917. Four of New York City's wealthy power brokers and their wives head up to Saratoga Springs, but not to the racetrack. New York Tribune publisher Ogden Mills Reid Frank A. Vanderlip, the president of what is now Citibank financier James Lees Laidlaw, and stockbroker James Norman De Rapelye Whitehouse are delegates to an urgent three-day meeting to plan what a reporter for Reid's paper called a "veritable crusade" for a "holy cause."

That cause was women's right to vote in New York, secured 100 years ago this month by ballot referendum on Nov. 6, 1917.

This happened because women organized and agitated for 70 long years, and also because in the 1910s, men like those in the Saratoga quartet recognized the value they could bring to this just cause. To aid the women, they gave time and money as part of an organized force of thousands across 35 states, the Men's League for Woman Suffrage.

That August in New York, victory was far from assured. A 1915 attempt to get the referendum passed had failed decisively.

This time, with the country at war, burgeoning support gained in the intervening two years brought a victory margin of more than 90,000 votes. As of Jan. 1, 1918, New York dropped the word "male" from its Constitution and became the 14th state in the union to enfranchise women.

Men like the "suffrage husbands" at Saratoga took their inspiration from the tireless activism of their equally formidable wives. Helen Rogers Reid, Narcissa Cox Vanderlip, Harriet Burton Laidlaw and Vira Boarman Whitehouse all were major leaders of the New York State campaign.

The wives of other men moved them to action, too, or it was their mothers, sisters, friends and lovers. Still more joined up because men like Vanderlip did, or to support a progressive cause.

The inventiveness and success of New York's suffrage campaign, built on lavish parades, clever promotional gimmicks, and strategic and tactical finesse, spurred the momentum that finally moved Congress to approve the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. By 1920, three-quarters of the states had ratified the measure and it became law.

In part because the men never sought credit, history has been slow to record their contribution, even though women thanked them often and in public, in real time.

James Laidlaw, as National Men's League president, had platform honors at the New York victory celebration. He praised the women for their "hard steady grinding and good organization." He also acknowledged what the movement had taught his legion of A-list lawyers, writers, publishers, scientists, clergy, attorneys and business leaders, men today's young activists might call "allies."

"We have learned," he said, "to be auxiliaries."

All of this should remind us that the flip-side of outrage or protest is a vision of what should exist in its stead. An important lesson of suffrage is that men's support, both in and outside legislatures, is essential to correcting the gender inequalities that still fester. As Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, put it this summer, "Men have to endorse the project as much as women."

Helen Rogers Reid - History

Carl Rogers was a famous American psychologist and was among the founders of humanistic approach to psychology. He was considered to be one of the pioneers of psychotherapy research.

Early Life

Carl was born on January 8, 1902, in Chicago, Illinois. His father, Walter Rogers, was a civil engineer while his mother, Julia, was a homemaker and a devout Christian. Carl was the fourth of the six children that his parents had.

Educational Years

Rogers was a bright child and he started reading pretty early. From his early childhood, Carl was very disciplined and independent and he was very sincere about his studies. He started appreciating the usage scientific method in the practical world at an early age.

After his high school education, Carl went to the University of Wisconsin and his first career choice was working in agriculture, followed by history, then religion. After being on a trip to China at the age of 20 for an International Christian Conference, Carl started doubting his religious beliefs and convictions.

He decided to change his choice of career and enrolled himself at the Union Theological Seminary. After two years at seminary, Carl left seminary and attended the Teacher’s College at Columbia University and completed his M.A. in 1928 followed by his Ph.D. in 1931. For his doctoral work, Carl engaged himself in child study.

Professional Life

In 1930, Carl served as the director of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children, which was in Rochester, New York. Between 1935 and 1940, he worked at the University of Rochester as a lecturer. In 1940, Carl joined Ohio State University as a professor of clinical psychology. Soon after, he was invited by the University of Chicago to set up a counseling center.

In 1947, Carl Rogers was elected as the President of the American Psychological Association and he later became the president of the American Academy of Psychotherapists. From 1957 to 1963, Carl taught at the University of Wisconsin. During his career, Carl Rogers wrote many standout books on psychology. Along with Abraham Maslow, Carl pioneered humanistic psychology movement, which reached its peak during the 1960s.

Personal Life

Carl Rogers was married to Helen Elliot, whom he married against the wishes of his parents in 1924. Together they had two children, David and Natalie. Helen and Carl were together until 1979 when Helen passed away. Carl Rogers had a healthy and active work life until the age of 85. He fell in 1987, which resulted in a pelvic fracture. He had a successful operation but after that his pancreas failed and he died a few days after that.

Theories and Contributions to Psychology

Throughout his work, Carl Roger dedicated himself to humanistic psychology, and he is well-known for his theory of personality development. Roger was one of the founders of humanistic psychology, which emphasizes a person-to-person approach rather than the traditional therapist-patient relationship.

His client-centered therapy, also known as the theory of personality development, was designed around the client. The theory emphasized the importance of self-actualizing tendency in forming a self-concept. According to Rogers, each person has within them the inherent tendency to grow and develop. He believed that every person can achieve their goals, wishes and desires in life. This inherent tendency influences the self-esteem and self-actualization.

According to him, the experience of being understood and valued gives one the freedom to grow. In order to do that, the therapist must express complete acceptance of the patient. Rogers said that his can be best achieved through the method of reflection.

Throughout the therapy session, the patient is allowed to direct the course of the session, and the therapist only makes small interruptive remarks just to identify certain factors. According to him, he is a facilitator who creates an environment for learning and growth. This unique approach of Rogers found wide applications in various domains, such as psychotherapy and counseling, education, organizations, and other group settings.

Another fascinating study of Carl was on the idea of feedback. He discovered that there are five ways in which a person gives his feedback. These include evaluative, interpretive, supportive, probing and understanding.

Publications and Awards

Carl Rogers wrote 16 books and more than 200 articles and received several awards, including the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award of the American Psychological Association. In 1972, he became the only person to receive that award along with the association’s Distinguished Professional Contribution Award. He was also given the Nicholas Murray Butler Silver Medal from Columbia University in 1955. He achieved his honorary degrees from different universities all across the world.

Dr Helen Rogers

I am a socio-cultural historian working in the English Department at Liverpool John Moores University. My main research interests are in nineteenth-century culture and society, crime and punishment, autobiography and working-class writing, the digital humanities and creative non-fiction. I am working on a book called ‘Conviction: stories from a nineteenth-century prison’ and blog about my research and creative approach to historical writing at From 2008-2015, I was an editor for the Journal of Victorian Culture. I am now leading a research project to set up an online archive of working-class autobiography.

In recent years I have developed three digital humanities modules which introduce students to online research skills, working with digital texts and archives, and using social media to create and disseminate their own research. You can read about this approach to student learning at

In my third-year module, 'Writing Lives: A Collaborative Research Project on Working-Class Autobiography', students create an author blog and write ten research posts about their author's life and memoir. Their research is contributing to the development of an online archive on working-class autobiography. You can read their blogs at

In my second-year module ‘Prison Voices: Crime, Conviction and Confession 1700-1900’, students set up their own blog and post weekly on narratives, representations and lived experience of crime and punishment.

Visitation is from 4 to 8 p.m. EST Sunday, June 20, in Callahan & Hughes Funeral Home, 605 South 25 th Street, and one hour prior to services Monday at the church.

Mrs. Rogers was born at home Nov. 28, 1932, at Vermillion, the daughter of the late Arthur C. Forster and Mary E. Bennett Forster. She married Charles L. Rogers, who preceded her in death.

Survivors include her children, Kenneth Rogers of Washington, D.C., Mary Beth (Ray) Ripple of Terre Haute and Trish (Dave) Beadle of Farmersburg, Ind. grandchildren, Carrie (Matt) Sears, Stacie (Brian) Whitley, Angel (james) Rice, Chrissy (Rex) McKee, Tyler Beadle, and Ryan Beadle great-grandchildren, Paige Tevlin, Whitnie (Tay) Weatherspoon, Mackenzie McKee, Tre (Olivia) Rice, Austin Mosteller, Hallie Whitley, Jordyn Rice, Kaylie Whitley, Michaela McKee, Mollie McKee and Jaylee Shelby great-great-granddaughters, Isabella Cooper and Baby Charlotte due in November best friend since second grade, Elizabeth Patten of Paris and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her son-in-law, Lloyd Sears and a brother, James A. Forster.

Mrs. Rogers attended Paris High School and played French horn in the marching band and graduated in 1950. She fell in love with Charlie, a young airman, and they were married Sept. 27, 1953, and were married nearly 50 years until his death in 2003.

She was a dedicated 70-year member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority and had more than 60 years of perfect attendance, with her most recent chapter being Xi Alpha Mu. She was a longtime faithful member of Central Christian Church Disciples of Christ where she was a choir member for more than 50 years as well as being involved with many other aspects of the church and being known as Grandma Helen to all at church who loved her. Her husband always said that if the church doors were open she was there.

Mrs. Rogers had three jobs in her life: Telephone operator in Paris, raising her family and clerk at G. C. Murphy after her children were older where she started when the store first opened and ended when the store closed its doors. The greatest of these was raising her family and it brought her much joy to be Mom, Grandma, and GGma.

Having moved several times during her husband&rsquos military career, they continued their globetrotting in retirement visiting countries around the world and even staying in Japan with the families of her granddaughter&rsquos exchange students.

The family expresses sincere appreciation to Southwood Healthcare for the kindness and compassion during her time there.

Memorial donations may be made to Central Christian Church or the American Cancer Society.
