Placeholder Image

Clarence “Clancy” Rogers has been named as the new manager of the Manteca Museum. 

He will help coordinate day-to-day business for the museum, replacing Evelyn Prouty, who retired from the position last year.

Rogers worked in his earlier days as an ammonia plant operator for Occidental Petroleum in Lathrop. He then joined the Manteca Police Department, where he retired, as a sergeant, after 27 years.  He then led security efforts with AG Spanos Company for three years, before moving to the foothills, where he  served as an officer, before retiring as Jackson Rancheria Tribal Deputy Police Chief. After traveling by motorhome for another year, he and his wife, Carrie, decided to move back to Manteca last year.

Rogers is a life-long fan of history, not only in his reading and research, but from his work in public service here over the years. He boasts of a talent for growing giant tomatoes. Rogers and his wife still enjoy being around motorhome travelers from around the world, volunteering time on weekends at a local RV park near Manteca.

Rogers sees the Manteca Museum as a perfect place for him to support the many volunteers and museum members who help preserve our community’s past.

Rogers can be reached at the Manteca Museum (209)825-3021, or by email at
