Vogt was born in Jutebog, Germany on July 9, 1921 and emigrated with his family to the United States in 1924. They settled in Forest Park, Illinois. After high school he entered the U.S. Coast Guard and served during World War II. After being discharged he went to the University of Kansas and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. He established several companies, including Ovenaire in Charlottesville in 1959.
Vogt told The Hook in 2006 that his most decisive vote came in 1970 over a proposed merger with Albemarle County. While City Council was unanimous in its decision, Vogt said that Council did not do enough to sell the idea to the community and the referendum failed. .
