Hamden Hall was recently informed that Franklin Howard Rose, Class of 1953, died on Sept. 29, 2018. His wife Jeanne told us that "Howard," who started Hamden Hall in the fifth grade, cherished Hamden Hall and spoke often about his days "under the pines," and how Hamden Hall changed his life! He wanted to acknowledge the positive impact Hamden Hall made on his life and has remembered his alma mater with a planned gift.
