Rose Family sous-fonds

The sous-fonds consists of correspondence between Mrs. Rose (until 1952) and Dr. Rose (thereafter) with Mr. Chester Cuthbert, the nephew of Emily (Cuthbert) Rose, beginning in 1932 when the Roses were in Dartmouth College, and continuing until the death of Dr. Rose in 1968. The letters describe personal and family matters and illustrate the serious concerns of a Canadian family in the mid-twentieth century, as well as the pressing problems of a Canadian couple in a volatile Europe during the same period.
