Henry Wade Rogers
Henry Wade Rogers (October 15, 1853 – August 16, 1926) was a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit from 1913 to 1926.
Rogers was born in upstate New York State and studied at the University of Michigan. He practiced law for several years in various locations including Minnesota and New Jersey before becoming a law professor. Rogers' academic career included serving as the Dean of the Law Department of the University of Michigan, President of Northwestern University, and Dean of the Yale Law School.
In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson nominated Rogers to a seat on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Rogers was confirmed and served on the court for 13 years. Rogers was a methodical judge known, according to the biography of Learned Hand by Professor Gerald Gunther, for writing extremely long opinions; Hand apparently did not regard him highly. He died in 1926 and was succeeded by Thomas Walter Swan.
