Henry Rosenberg’s will included a bequest of more than $600,000 for a free public library for the use of the people of Galveston that “will aid their intellectual and moral development, and be a source of pleasure to them and their children through many generations.”

The Rosenberg Library opened on June 22, 1904, and Frank Chauncey Patten stood at the helm as its first librarian. Through recently donated and newly discovered materials on Frank Patten, more is being uncovered about the man entrusted with the moral and intellectual development of the residents of Galveston.
