Happy Birthday to James Gamble Rogers, Class of 1889, who was born in Kentucky on this day in 1867. Rogers was the architect of eight Yale residential colleges, Sterling Memorial Library, the Law School, the Hall of Graduate Studies, and much more. He was immortalized in this relief sculpture upon the completion of the Memorial Quadrangle (later Saybrook and Branford Colleges), his first work at Yale, in 1921.
