W. Lane Rogers, 1945 - 2009

W. Lane Rogers was a widely-read Phoenix newspaper columnist. He also began writing historical columns for two southern Arizona newspapers. He has written hundreds of articles for publications worldwide and has authored several books in Western history. Titles in the crime genre include Crimes & Misdeeds: Headlines from Arizona's Past and Ruthless Acts: The Utah Murders. Forthcoming are The California Snatch Racket and Serious Mischief: Crimes in California History. Each is co-authored with historian James R. Smith, best-selling author of San Francisco's Lost Landmarks.  A dynamic speaker, Rogers appeared before a wide variety of organizations including the Arizona Historical Society. He lectured frequently in colleges and universities where his topics reflect the broad diversity of his writing--early 20th century crime in the West, labor unrest in Western mining camps, Mormon polygamy, World War I and the Jazz Age, the embryonic film and broadcasting industries, the Great Depression and the 1930s, and the modern Civil Rights Movement.

Books by Rogers in the crime genre include Ruthless Acts: The Utah Murders and Crimes & Misdeeds: Headlines from Arizona's Past.

World War II was over when a soldier gazed down at Camp Salina from atop a machine-gun tower. Moments later, he fired into the tents of 250 German POWs. Nine prisoners were murdered, twenty were wounded. In 1925, Robert Marshall, a black man, was snatched from the Carbon County jail. A mob hanged him—more than once—from a tree limb. Some 800 men, women and children viewed the dangling corpse, and a ghoulish photographer sold snapshots door-to-door for a quarter apiece. A Bible-thumping vulgarian roamed an Ogden neighborhood in 1943, armed with a loaded shotgun. He unloaded it into the bodies of seven random victims including a prominent judge. Five died, two were badly wounded.
