Jack Martin Balcer
Jack Martin Balcer taught at Denison and Indiana Universities and came to Ohio State in 1971. A renowned teacher, he was a student favorite whose own photographs of sites, coins and people helped make his courses treasured memories for generations of Ohio State students. His work on numismatics and the relations of Greeks and non-Greeks in Asia Minor won him numerous prestigious grants, but his first love remained the University and the students he taught for over thirty years.
