The portrait of Dean Hosch was unveiled during the 1964 Law Day ceremonies, which also marked his retirement. The portrait hangs at the entrance to the J. Alton Hosch Law Library Annex. The Annex was named for the late Dean in 1982.
Near the portrait is the J. Alton Hosch Collection with additional photographs of the Dean along with books, papers, and memorabilia donated to the Law School by his widow, Nina Rusk Hosch.
