Nicasio-born son of Frank Edward Rodgers and the grandson of Frank Rodgers, whose family ran the General Store in Nicasio for over 30 years. The family has been in Nicasio since 1866. Francis describes the store, hotel, saloons, church, school and life style as a boy growing up. From 1920 to the present (1980) Francis describes his life in San Rafael as a businessman, a city fireman for 30 years, and, now retired, his involvement with Sons in Retirement . From 1974 to 1984, Carla Ehat, with partner Anne Kent, and later Genevieve Martinelli, interviewed a broad spectrum of Marin County's long-time residents, from ranchers to politicians, including descendants of early pioneer families. This program was co-sponsored by the Marin County Free Library and the Moya Library in Ross. The resulting archive, consisting of nearly 300 recordings and their corresponding transcriptions, are housed in the Anne T. Kent California Room at the Civic Center branch of the Marin County Free Library.
