The first magician he saw was Duke Montague at the age of 7, who inspired his life-long interest in magic. When he graduated from high school in 1956, he joined the US Navy which he made his career for 20 years until 1976.[2]

Rogers contributed articles to The Linking Ring, Genii, Epoptica and in M-U-M he had a column called "Table Time," that ran ten years. That column was the basis of his book The Complete Mike Rogers published by Magic Inc.
