Articles or Speeches by or About A.C. Rogers

Introduction – Arthur C. Rogers

Arthur C. Rogers served as Superintendent of the School for the Feebleminded at Faribault from September 1, 1885 until he died on January 2, 1917. He was born near Decorah, Iowa on July 17, 1856. Rogers attended public schools in Iowa and Michigan and the River Valley Seminary in Adrian, Michigan. He received a B.S. degree from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana in 1877. He worked as a bookkeeper for five years at the Iowa State School for Feeble Minded at Glenwood, Iowa. In 1883 he received his M.D. degree from the State University of Iowa Medical Department. After medical school he worked as a physician and clerk at the government training school for Indians in Chemawa, Oregon.

Rogers participated in the professional organizations of the day. On a national level he participated in the National Conference of Charities and Corrections and became one of the leaders of the Association of Medical Officers.  (The latter organization changed its name to the American Association for the Study of the Feebleminded in 1906.  Today it is known as the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.) Rogers edited that organization’s journal, the Journal of Psycho Asthenics, which was published at Faribault. He also supported the research of the American Breeders Association. In Minnesota Rogers participated in the Minnesota Conference of Charities and Corrections, the Minnesota Academy of Social Science, and the Minnesota Educational Association.  After the Board of Control was established, he took an active part in its quarterly conferences.

This portion of With an Eye to the Past includes papers Rogers presented at conferences of these organizations, his comments in discussions held at these conferences, and articles he wrote.

Articles or Speeches by or About A.R.T. Wylie

Introduction – A. R. T. Wylie

Arthur Rufus Trego Wylie, a graduate of Harvard University, became one of the first psychologists employed at an institution for persons with developmental disabilities when Superintendent A. C. Rogers hired him to serve in that capacity at the School for the Feeble-Minded in Faribault in 1898. He worked there in that capacity until 1902.  After he received his M.D. degree at the University of Minnesota in 1906, Rogers hired him as the first assistant physician, a position he held until 1910, when he became superintendent at the Institution for the Feebleminded in Grafton, North Dakota. Wylie returned to Minnesota in 1935 as junior physician at the School for Feeble-Minded and Colony for Epileptics at Faribault, a position he held until his death in March 1941.

With an Eye to the Past includes reports of his psychological studies at Faribault and other publications.
