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.”
