The John Rogers & Georgette de Bruchard Photography Collection is one of the most significant archives of regional architectural and documentary photography in Dallas. The collection spans 1920-1992, with the bulk covering the period 1945-1991. Images in the archive were captured by husband and wife John and Georgette, and consist primarily of people, architecture (office buildings, interiors, exteriors, houses), advertising and events. Many of the images in the collection appeared in publications such as Architectural Digest, Better Homes and Gardens and Southern Living.

Rogers developed close relationships with architects and firms working in Dallas including Jarvis-Putty-Jarvis, O’Neil Ford, Arch Swank, Beran & Shelmire and Philip Johnson, among many others. The archive includes major building projects such as Republic Center, Statler Hilton, and the Texas Instruments Semiconductor Facility as well as smaller projects, such as drug stores and public libraries. UNT Libraries Special Collections has spent nearly two years meticulously organizing and indexing the collection, which is being carefully and systematically digitized. Following the full digitization process and the identification of subject matter, the images will be freely available for personal and educational use through the UNT Portal to Texas History.
