Most notable among them was Sam Rosenthal, who served as mayor of Rolling Fork for over 45 years.
Sam Rosenthal Sam Rosenthal, nicknamed "Mr. On Sam's third birthday, the Rosenthals moved to Natchez, where Sam spent most of his childhood. After a short stint in New Orleans, Rosenthal moved to Rolling Fork in 1919 to help his brother Monroe with his clothing store. An outspoken gentleman, Rosenthal was elected as an alderman on April 8, 1924. Although Rosenthal had no real interest in the position, future Governor and Rolling Fork native Fielding Wright nominated him as a mayoral candidate. Rosenthal's remarkable mayoral tenure spanned from 1924 until 1969. Rosenthal was also a city judge and a charter member of the Lions Club, along with fellow Jews Sam Lamensdorf, Ed Danzig, and H.C. Glazier Jr. Rosenthal brought business and innovation to the tiny Delta town. When he started his term, the town had no sidewalks, paved streets or recreational facilities. To drum up industry, he introduced a credit structure for the local lumber yard and and invested in a new generating motor in order to improve electricity in this rural Delta area. When the levees broke in the 1927 Great Mississippi River Flood, Rosenthal evacuated everyone on a train to Vicksburg before Rolling Fork completely flooded. At one point, the town was covered by seven feet of water. Rosenthal stayed throughout the ordeal and served as chairman of the Red Cross to restore the town. During the Great Depression, Rosenthal used the Works Progress Administration of the New Deal to the town's advantage to pave the roads. After World War II, Rosenthal organized the Deer Creek National Gas District, which served five municipalities. He served as chairman of the district for nearly 15 years. Rosenthal also modernized Rolling Fork with schools and a library. During the 1960s, Rosenthal held community discussions to allay tensions during the civil rights movement. For all the successes he brought to Rolling Fork, the town designated July 11, 1968, as "Sam Rosenthal Day," and later named the city hall after him. In 1969, Sam Rosenthal retired after loosing his reelection bid. He continued to work in his clothing store, "Mr. Sams", close to his sister Bessie's store, affectionately referred to as the "Pink Store. In addition to his civic contributions, Rosenthal was also heavily involved in the local Jewish community, serving as president of the local congregation. Sam recounts years as Rolling Fork.
