In 2016, UNT Special Collections acquired the John Rogers and Georgette de Bruchard Collection,
which chronicles the couple’s work and personal lives. Rogers and de Bruchard were both
professional photographers working in Dallas from the 1940s to the 90s. Much of their
photography was featured in publications such as newspapers, brochures, and even in
popular magazines like Better Homes and Gardens and Time. Their work in commercial,
architectural, and portrait photography captured a major period of development and
innovation in Dallas, Texas, and in American culture and politics.
Morgan Gieringer gave a presentation about this collection for the Dallas Architecture Forum,
in October 2020. View the recording of the presentation here.
As of the publication of this exhibit in October 2020, only a fraction of the John
Rogers and Georgette de Bruchard Collection has been digitized. As we continue to
digitize materials from the Collection, this exhibit will be updated to reflect new
themes and notable materials. Visit
The Portal to Texas History to view all digitized materials from the John Rogers and Georgette de Bruchard Collection.
