Rossin was featured in The Occidental News for his portraits of John Brooks Slaughter and Theodore R. Mitchell. These portraits now are displayed Ahmanson Reading Room in the Mary Norton Clapp Library. Rossin quotes, “The paintings are never really a copy of an existing picture, it’s a compilation. I’m trying to express much more than just the likeness. My impression of the person, the personality, is much more important than the likeness.” These portraits by Rossin commemorate the institution’s history and character.
