Alfred Rose Master of Arts

Alfred Rose (1840-1919)
Alfred Rose was born on 23 January 1840. He was admitted to Emmanuel College in 1859 to read mathematics, graduating 3rd Wrangler (1863) and MA (1866). He was ordained deacon (1864) and priest (1865) in the Diocese of Ely, and served as curate of Ramsgate (1865-66). Appointed Fellow of the College in 1866 and Senior Fellow in 1913, he also served for many years as its Bursar. He died on 15 October 1919.
Interests and character
Rose was a proficient amateur photographer of the College buildings and grounds, and many of his glass plates have been preserved in the College photograph archive. He was also a keen botanist and went on many plant-collecting expeditions to the continent, from which the College gardens benefitted. He was also an active member of the University Botanical Gardens Syndicate.
He was regarded with great affection as a kindly, courteous and unselfish man, who contributed a great deal to the College.
