Biographical/Historical Note

Judge Uriah Milton (U.M.) Rose was a nationally known lawyer. Born in Kentucky in 1834, he attended the Transylvania Law School in Lexington, Kentucky, and graduated in 1853 at the age of nineteen. In the same year he married Margaret T. Gibbs. They moved to Batesville, Arkansas, where U.M. began his law practice. In 1865, Governor Elias Conway appointed Rose Chancellor of Pulaski County. Moving to Little Rock, Arkansas, he started a law partnership that became the Rose Law Firm. He was the only attorney from Arkansas asked to help organize the American Bar Association in 1878 and was elected president in 1901. At his suggestion, Arkansas attorneys founded the Arkansas Bar Association in 1882. He was asked by President Theodore Roosevelt to attend the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1907 as Ambassador. Uriah Milton Rose's statue stands in the United States Capitol in Statuary Hall located in Washington, D.C.
