Dr. Thomas Mark was born in New York City in 1924, attended school in Hungary and New York. Tom graduated high school in 1942 and served in the U.S. Army from 1943 to 1946. He received his B.A. from Brooklyn College in 1949 and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Columbia University. Tom taught at Baldwin-Wallace College for one year but spent most of his teaching career at Colorado State, retiring in 1994.

Tom taught courses in Milton, Dante, and Shakespeare, and amassed several generations of loyal and grateful students over the years. His scholarship focused on Hungarian literature, and he translated the epic poem The Tragedy of Man by Hungarian poet Imre Madach. He also wrote on the Hungarian reception of Shakespeare.

Tom was known, respected, and loved for his scholarship, courtesy, and wit. His love of music matched his love of all forms of literature, and he was truly a man of culture. View his full obituary.
