Description Aon Risk Services business card for Norman S. Rossinow. The business card identifies Norman S. Rossinow as Vice President at Aon Risk Services, Inc., of New York at Two World Trade Center.
Historical Notes New Jersey native Norman Rossinow grew up in North Caldwell. He lived in Cedar Grove with his wife, Susan. Norman enjoyed the challenge of re-creating dishes he had tasted at restaurants. His own specialties were Spanish omelets and banana nut pancakes. On September 11, Norman was at work on the South Tower’s 105th floor at Aon Corporation, where he was a senior vice president. He was 39 years old.
Curator's Comment Business cards were ubiquitous survivors of the 9/11 attacks. Among those in the Museum’s collection, most were found in recovered wallets and pocketbooks, or retrieved from the paper debris that fell from the towers. Their variety is indicative of the multiplicity of companies and activities anchored at the World Trade Center.
Victims’ relatives and employees of businesses formerly located at the World Trade Center have also donated pristine business cards found at home or in jacket pockets after September 11, 2001. Such cards were often retained as souvenirs of the destroyed landmark or as evidence that placed loved ones at the World Trade Center. Business cards tied to passengers aboard the hijacked aircrafts were also found at the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon crash site, and in the impact area of Flight 93 near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
