A memory submitted by Fritz Holmstrom, Class of 1975

Dr. Balch (or Balsh?) was my Nature of Man professor in 1971. He was the most articulate, smart, interesting and caring professor that I can remember at SMU. I remember he once had our entire class (about 15 of us) over to his house for dinner with him, his wife and a small pack of whippets (dogs).

An oft used quote of Dr. Jeskey, Organic Chemistry, has proven wise and useful to me over the years: “First we must work hard, then we can play hard.”
