Royal Rosamond Press Co.





My grandfather was a Newspaperman – of sorts! He sold 400 copies of The Oklahoman, and 200 copies of the Oklahoma Times, at his newspaper stand in Oklahoma City. He tutored young people in poetry and had plans to build a Poet’s retreat on the Buffalo River.The Ozark Historian, Otto Rayburn, was supportive of this.

It is the objective of my newspaper to restore the dream of these two men who published their own magazine. Rayburn published ‘Arcadian Life’, and Royal’s Gem Publishing, published ‘Bright Stories’. Royal also published one novel under ‘R.R. Rosamond Publishing’ founded in 1931 in Ventura where it was printed.

Above you see letters sent to Royal, and two books he published. Rosamond’s poems are here, along with photos of his daughters, and his friends who were writers, camping on Santa Cruz Island.

  1. Reblogged this on rosamondpress and commented:

    Sydney Morris sent tens of thousands of dollars to the outsiders who left my family in ruins. With not a penny from Christine Rosamond’s creative legacy I amassed a huge amount of our amazing history while living below the poverty level. With moneys from the June and Vincent Rice Trust, I was able to purchase items for my newspaper, Royal Rosamond Press.
