Collection Walter W. Rose Collection
Title Walter W. Rose Collection
Scope & Content The Walter Rose Collection consists mainly of documents from Walter Rose's company and his family. The main part of the collection deals with Walter Rose and his business. The collection is divided into four series:

Series I, Walter W. Rose: There are many documents, ledger books, and business letters. Among his business items are many legal documents such as warranty and mortgage deeds and many sale of land contracts. Some of Walter Rose's business items consist of old bank statements from the Florida Bank of Orlando. There is also a very interesting Orange Echoes, a newsletter published by the Orange County Chamber of Commerce, that talks about the new Orange County Court House built in 1927. There are two items from his political career. There are also some personal items such as letters to him and the contract for the sale of his personal land over to his company, Rose Investments Company. Of interest is a letter from Florida author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings located in Box 1 FF 24.

Series II, Stella Rose: All of the items are of a personal nature except some legal documents on the death of Walter Rose, her husband.

Series III, Harriet Rose: Most are of a personal nature. There are papers from her college days at Rollins College and many personal letters between her and Glen Spears, her future husband. These materials also contain some of Glean Spears business documents.

Series IV, Miscellaneous: Certificates of Appointment of Jon Michael Smith to various positions within the United States Navy. The relationship between Smith and the Rose family is unknown.
