Alvin N. Rosenberg, 85, insurance executive

Alvin N. Rosenberg, an insurance executive who collected 19th century antique carriages and rented them out to raise money for cancer sufferers, died yesterday of emphysema at the Gilchrist Hospice of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. He was 85.

The Monkton resident and his wife collected more than 30 buggies, carts, traps and sleighs which they rented out for weddings, birthday parties, funerals and parades. Instead of accepting money, they suggested that donations be made to the Edith Rosen Strauss Cancer Fund. He also entertained children who were stricken with cancer by taking them on weekly outings to the Baltimore Zoo.

He competed in the annual Devon (Pa.) Driving Marathon and won numerous ribbons and trophies on the show circuit. He was a member of the American Driving Society, the League of Maryland Horseman and the American Carriage Association.

Mr. Rosenberg had been associated with Insurance Inc. for over 40 years and at the time of his death was vice president.

In the early 1950s, he owned and operated Al's Delicatessen in Annapolis. At lunchtime, he would load sandwiches on a boat and sell them to the workers who were building the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

The Baltimore native was educated in city schools.

He was a member of the Har Sinai Congregation and the Box 414 Association.

Graveside services will be held at 10: 30 a.m. today at the Har Sinai Congregation Cemetery, 6300 Park Heights Ave.

His wife of 42 years, the former Peggy Kemper, died in 1984. He is survived by two sons, Ross Rosenberg of Silver Spring and Samuel I. Rosenberg of Baltimore; a daughter, Marcia Lee Selko of Monkton; a brother, Benedict Rosenberg of Pikesville; a sister, Florine Schnydman of Randallstown; and six grandchildren.
