Clifford Joy "Doc" Rogers was born in Clarion, Ohio on December 20, 1897 and orphaned at the age of seven. Raised by an uncle who held degrees in both medicine and dentistry, Rogers was given his nickname "Little Doc" to distinguish him from his uncle. Rogers served in the military and then purchased a homestead in Campbell County. He taught high school and coached football before taking a job with the state Motor Vehicle Division. Eventually he became secretary to Governor Clark and was named Wyoming's deputy Secretary of State in 1950. Rogers served as Acting Governor from 1953-1955 and twice held the office of State Treasurer (1946-1950, 1958-1962). Rogers died May 18, 1962.
