Rose’s Coach, William J. Curran, kept a notebook which included stories, details, and praises of Rose, her records, and her swims.
Thanks to Rose’s granddaughter Sandy, we have a reproduction of several of the pages from this book.
Excerpted here are a drawing depicting several of Rose’s achievements, and a toast:
