Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter. Born in Birmingham, England on May 1, 1872. The Rogers family immigrated to California in 1875 and established a prosperous sheep ranch in Monterey County. In her youth Margaret was known as one of the finest horsewomen in the West. The magazine Western Woman said of her, 'She could break the worst kind of bucking bronco without assistance; with the utmost ease she drove six or eight horses hitched together in a manner that would win admiration from the most experienced stage drivers of the old days." She left her fathers ranch in 1905 and moved to nearby Santa Cruz where she settled in the Seabright area. For many years Rogers lived in back of the old Tyrell house (now the site of the Natural History Museum on East Cliff Drive). It housed the Santa Cruz Art League of which she was a cofounder in 1919. Her art studies were under local artists Frank L. Heath and Lorenzo P. Latimer. She and her constant painting companions, Cornelia DeGavere and Leonora Penniman, were known as the "Santa Cruz Three" and made many camping trips into the Sierra and surrounding area. A spinster, she died in Santa Cruz, CA on March 15, 1961.
