It is certainly good, but possibly not quite correct.
I believe the 1905 rose was named after Lieutenant-General Arthur MacArthur 1845-1912, and not his son Douglas MacArthur 1809-1964

Well, Patricia, Douglas MacArthur might have been the better candidate as he lived along, long time :)

Ha ha. Maybe when I get to 155 years of age, I will have learnt to double check my typing.
Douglas lived from 1880 to 1964. Thanks Jedmar.
