Dr. Rose came to Dubuque around 1874. He married and raised a family with his wife Kate, who was a White woman of German descent. While in the Key City, he advanced in his career from hotel porter to respected physician (chiropodist/podiatrist) in the early 1890s. Dr.
Rose was a mentor to Henry Martin, also a porter, who went on to become a chiropodist and was father to nine children. Of Martin's children, four became doctors and one was the illustrious engineer and Tuskegee Airman, Captain Robert Martin.
Rose's influence was wide and deep in Dubuque.
