Carl Lindbergh Bernard Rogers, commonly known as C. L. B. Rogers, (1928 – 25 July 1996) was a Hounduran-born[2] Belizean politician.

Electoral history

Rogers was a founding member of the National Independence Party in 1958, winning a seat on the Belize City Council under its banner in December of that year.

A member of the People's United Party after 1961, Rogers was first elected to the British Honduras Legislative Assembly (now the Belize House of Representatives) in 1961 from Belize City-based Mesopotamia constituency. A close political ally of PUP leader and Premier George Cadle Price, Rogers served as Minister of Home Affairs and Deputy Premier.[2] He was defeated for re-election in 1979 by the United Democratic Party's Curl Thompson.

After leaving office Rogers served as the Belizean ambassador to the United Nations.[2]
