ROSE, George Maclean, Canadian publisher, born in Wick, Caithness-shire, Scotland, 14 March, 1829. He was educated at the Presbyterian academy in his native place, and learned the printing trade in the office of the "John O'Groat Journal." In 1851 he came to Canada, and in 1853, with his brother Henry, he established a small job-printing office in Montreal. In 1856 the partnership was dissolved, and George, removing to Upper Canada, aided in founding the Merrickville "Chronicle," and was also city editor of the London " Prototype." Since 1858 he has been in the printing business in Toronto and Montreal as manager or proprietor, and with his brother Daniel he now (1888) has the most extensive publishing and printing establishment in the Dominion. Mr. Rose has long been an active temperance reformer in the United States as well as in Canada. He was president of the Toronto board of trade in 1882, and for five years a director of the Ontario bank. Among other Books he has edited "The Life of Henry Ward Beecher" (Toronto, 1887).
