Comics writer and illustrator. New fans know Rosa for his Duck books for Disney, taking up the torch passed on by Carl Barks. Older fans of Rosa fondly recall "Don Rosa's Information Center" in the RBCC and his comic strips "The Pertwillaby Papers" and "Captain Kentucky." In 1980, Rosa married Ann Payne. Failing eyesight and shabby treatmnt from Disney led Rosa to retire from comics work. He and his wife, now-retired, enjoy tending to their log cabin home and the 25-acre lot on which it sits near Louisville, Kentucky.
