By the Way.....
Rosemeade was a very popular name for china patterns. It was used by
Harker, Mikasa and Wedgwood,
Scholder's mother, Ella Mae Scholder worked for Rosemeade Pottery for
several years according to North Dakota
State Alumni Foundation. His father was Administrator of Indian
Schools and for a time stayed at the Wahpeton Indian School. His
Wisconsin connection was that he went to school in Ashland & Superior. A
very interesting oral
history is available at the Smithsonian Archive of American Art. As a
child, he would paint envelopes and send them to famous people all over the
world to sign with the postage from that country and have them sent back because he was
a collector of stamps & postal covers. He recalled how he sent an
Albert Einstein with his formula painted on it and he got it back signed and
dated (due to the postmark).
