According to Hazel Le Rougetel, in A Heritage of Roses, pp. 24-5, Ethelyn Emery Keays collected many roses from the colonial period in America. She was one of the first to revive an interest in early roses...

[From "Rosa Helvetica", Nr. 9, 1993, article "Ethelyn Emery Keays" by Gerd Handschin, p. 32ff] Ethelyn Emery Keays was born 1871 in Ohio. During the time she lived at "Creek Side" in Calvert County, MD (1928-1948), she became fascinated with OGRs, researched and published. In 1948, her husband Dr. Keays became sick and they were forced to sell the house. Ethelyn Keays gave her collection of roses and a documentation to the University of Maryland. Unfortunately, except for a few documents, all has disappeared. The house burned down shortly after and the garden disppeared. She died 1961 in Long Island.
