ROHDE, Lewin Jorgen (ro'-deh), West Indian naval officer, born in St. Thomas, 28 October, 1786; died in Copenhagen, Denmark, 2 August, 1857. He was the son of a governor of St. Thomas, entered the Copenhagen naval school in 1803, and served creditably at the bombardment of that city. In 1821 he was promoted harbor-master of St. Thomas, and sent to make a nautical survey of the coast of the colony. His charts are still considered standards. In 1835 he was retired with the rank of captain. His works include "Historic of befolkning af Oeen St. Thomas" (2 vols., Copenhagen, 1822), and" Fulst aendig Signal System til Brug for alle nationers Skibe" (1835; revised ed., 1846), which has been translated into all European languages.
