Wednesday's Wonderful Collection - Rose family papers SMC.15.4

Judge Uriah Milton (U.M.) Rose was a nationally known lawyer. Born in Kentucky in 1834, he attended the Transylvania Law School in Lexington, Kentucky, and graduated in 1853 at the age of nineteen. In the same year he married Margaret T. Gibbs. They moved to Batesville, Arkansas, where U.M. began his law practice. In 1865 Governor Elias Conway appointed Rose Chancellor of Pulaski County. Moving to Little Rock, Arkansas, he started a law partnership that became the Rose Law Firm. He was the only attorney from Arkansas asked to help organize the American Bar Association in 1878, and was elected president in 1901. At his suggestion Arkansas attorneys founded the Arkansas Bar Association in 1882. He was asked by President Theodore Roosevelt to attend the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1907 as Ambassador. Uriah Milton Rose's statue stands in the United States Capitol in Statuary Hall located in Washington, District of Columbia. Rose died August 12, 1913, and is buried in the Mount Holly Cemetery in Little Rock, Arkansas.

George B. Rose was born in Batesville, Arkansas, July 10, 1860, the son of Uriah M. and Margaret T. Gibbs Rose. In 1865 George moved with his family to Little Rock. He received his education at St. John's College in Little Rock, studied law under his father, and was admitted to the bar in 1879. In 1881, he went into partnership with his father. In 1893, W.E. Hemingway joined the firm creating the Rose, Hemingway, Rose Law firm.

On May 2, 1882, George Rose married Marion Kimball, the daughter of Judge Eben W. Kimball and Mary Frye Kimball. Marion was born in Salem, Massachusetts, and moved with her family to Little Rock in 1874, where she finished high school. She graduated from Wellesley College. George and Marion had two children, a daughter who died in infancy, and a son Clarence.

George B. Rose was a prominent lawyer and art critic. He authored "Renaissance Masters" and "The World's Leading Painters." He was a member of the Arkansas Bar Association (president in 1902), the American Bar Association, American Law Institute, Board of Directors of the Little Rock Public Library, and Board of Trustees of the Little Rock Museum of Fine Arts.
