You don't know me but my name is Hal (Harold) McFadden. I lived in Hiawatha from 1947 until 1960. I have read a lot of your on-line writings and I must say, your work and your devotion to Hiawatha history is quite impressive.
I am looking for information on Johnny Rose. I'm not sure what years he lived in Hiawatha, but he was my Little League coach in 1952 & 1953. Any information would be helpful; where he moved to, when he died, etc. The last time I saw him I believe it was 1963.
Keep up the wonderful work, all us from Hiawatha appreciate all you have done to keep it alive for us.
If anyone can help Hal with this information e-mail me and I will give you his address -Wally
