Who Can Apply: Claire Kidd Rose was born in Cooperstown, NY, and grew up in Richfield Springs and Herkimer, NY with her brother Gordon L. Kidd, Jr. and her sister, Gloria Kidd-Golden. Entering Barnard College in the final days of World War II, Claire embraced opportunities to move in New York literary circles. After moving to the Chicago area in 1946, she held administrative and marketing posts at architectural and engineering firms before launching a 17-year career with the Blackstone Group, a research and consulting firm in Chicago and India.
Claire was an inspiration to her family, friends and colleagues through her ability to make them laugh, her passion for the Indo-American Center, her involvement in grassroots politics, her avid support of Chicago sports teams, and her human rights perspectives. Claire unfailingly knew the right gift for a child, the right words to motivate an adult, and abundant creative solutions to a problem.
