[See, The Concise Dictionary of American Jewish Biography 533 (Carlson Publ., 1994)][Rosenthal was editor of a journal, The Nomad, a poetry periodical, published from 1922 to 1924.] [Rosenthal's poem, "Alabama" appears in Palms, vol. 1, 1923-1924; "Colored Folk" appears in The Anthology of Alabama Poetry (1928); a Rosenthal poem appears in Contemporary Verse, 1929)][We have fair evidence to believe that Rosenthal's wife was a lawyer, that they practiced together in a firm, Rosenthal & Rosenthal, and that she was involved in the editing of The Nomad.
