  • Notes 
    • “After graduating from Austin High School, Dale attended the University of Texas and received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 1949. He then attended graduate school at the Massachuesetts Institute of Technology, receiving his doctorate in 1953 on the same day he married Marjorie Ann Taylor.
      “Dr. von Rosenberg’s professional career of 39 years was divided between industrial research and college teaching. He began at Humble Oil and Refining Company in Houston, then entered teaching at Louisiana State University. He spent 13 years at Tulane University in New Orleans where he was made a Full Professor. After a short time at the University of Tulsa, he completed his professional career with 13 years at Mobil Research and Development Corporation in Dallas and retired from Mobil in 1992. He was a life member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
      “Dr. von Rosenberg used mathematics extensively in his research. His book, Methods for the Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations went through five printings and was used in graduate courses more than 30 years after its first publication. His book was published in Russian by the Soviets.
      “Dale was active in Boy Scout Troop 20 in Austin and attained the rank of Eagle Scout. He served as Scout leader for ten years with Troop 48 in New Orleans while his sons were scouts. All three of his sons also attained the Eagle rank. With his sons, Dale hiked at Philmont Scout Ranch twice and attended the 1973 National Jamboree.
      “Dale played clarinet in bands throughout his schooling. He began in the University Junior High band while still in John B. Winn. This was followed by the Austin High band and four years in the Longhorn Band at the University of Texas. He played in the M.I.T. concert band while in graduate school.
      “Dr. von Rosenberg studied the history of his family, especially their immigration to Texas in 1849. He was a member of the German-Texan Heritage Society. Dale enjoyed reading and listening to classical music. He was a member of the Presbyterian church and served as a deacon. He was active in the Republican party all his adult life. In 1996, Dale and his wife moved to Sun City Georgetown and joined First Presbyterian Church.” [2]
