Lawrence provides a brief summary of how the North Carolina Supreme Court came in to being. He then lists the three men who were judges of that court and a short biography of each--Chief Justice John Louis Taylor and Associate Justices John Hall and Leonard Henderson.
For Henderson, the word roses can remind natives of a common surname in town. Two native sons most associated with the name: Charlie Rose, longtime host of the TV program “CBS This Morning”; Paul Rose, founder of the department store that opened in 1915. The word can also prompt reminders of Henderson’s blossoming economic development, in establishment of businesses like Iams Pet Foods and a Durham semiconductor firm, Semprius.
