HALPERIN Rose

HALPERIN Rose

Rose né Arfin was born approximately 1912. She married Harry J. Halperin in 1937 in Montréal. She adapted at least some classic novels to the colouring book format in the “Famous Stories In Paint Books” series and she wrote “The Music Nook” feature in Canadian Heroes. For the reviews in “Books You’ll Like”, R.H. was probably Rose Halperin. She was truly an essential part of the Educational Projects team.

She died 13 October 2003 in her 91st year.
