Summary: Mention of Edward Powell Foster's Ro is entered into the U.S. Congressional Record (H. Res. 432), 1914.
Description: From 1906 to 1931 from his hometown in Marietta, Edward Powell Foster published several books, a dictionary, and a newsletter using his language which he named Ro meaning "tell, say" in the language itself. Foster designed Ro to convey the meanings of words by their form. A number of supporters are listed in his books including Melvil Dewey, creator of the Dewey Decimal System. On March 2, 1914, Rep. George White of Ohio even introduced H. Res. 432 to the Committee on Education of the U.S. House of Representatives “providing for an investigation of a new language known as Ro,” securing a mention in the Congressional Record for Foster’s language.
