Rogers summarized the nature of the Pyle school in a letter of February 14, 1947:
There was no school in the usual sense of the word. Aside from the few men privileged to work in studios adjoining Mr.
Pyle’s, each of us had our own studios in town. We were professional artists working for publication.. . . When we needed specific advice we carried our canvases to Mr. Pyle’s studio and he was always always very generous – willing to take time from his own work in order to help us solve our problems.
In a letter of May 30,1956, from Woodstock, New York, Rogers described herself to Gertrude Brincklg as “artist, writer, illustrator of magazines, books, and cover designs.”
