The John Rogers Award was established by the Friends of the Library of Washington and Lee University to honor those who, over a long period of time, have given extraordinary service and multifaceted support to the University Library. It is named for John Rogers, who in 1800 gave Washington Academy its first major gift of books.

The recipients of the John Rogers Award for 2014 were Walter J. Maytham III '52 and Samuel A. Syme Jr '56. A posthumous award was also presented in honor of Barbara Brown, University Librarian, 1985-2003, to recognize and remember her service to the library and to the University.
