In Memoriam

Life Trustees

William Balderston, a banking and financial executive in Rochester and western New York, died in October. Elected to the Board of Trustees in 1980, Balderston also served on the board of the Medical Center and the former Genesee Hospital in Rochester as well as in leadership roles for several Rochester-area nonprofit and educational organizations.

Balderston and his wife, Ruth, moved to Rochester in 1966, when he began working for Lincoln First Banks, where he rose to CEO and chairman as the company became part of Chase Manhattan Corporation. He retired from Chase as executive vice president in 1993.

Robert (Bud) Frame ’53, a former president of Forbes Product Corporation, a custom manufacturer located in western New York, died in September. Elected to the Board of Trustees in 1979, Frame was a longtime volunteer and supporter of the University, helping lead several campaign efforts in the 1990s. He was a key philanthropic supporter of the David Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity, which was named for his friend and campus roommate, the late David Kearns ’52, a former chairman of the Board of Trustees and CEO of Xerox Corp.

Frame and his late wife, Margaret, commissioned a landmark clock that stands on Dandelion Square on the River Campus. Installed as part of the University’s sesquicentennial celebration in 2000, the clock was dedicated in recognition of Kearns and his commitment to the University.

James Gleason ’68S (MBA), the former chairman and CEO of Gleason Corporation and chairman of the Gleason Foundation, died in June. Elected to the Board of Trustees in 1980, Gleason was an active volunteer and supporter of the Simon Business School, holding important advisory roles for the school as well as on the Strong Memorial Hospital Board of Managers and other committees. He was a graduate of Simon’s first executive development MBA program.

He and his wife, Janis, provided a lead gift for the construction of Simon’s Gleason Hall, a 38,000-square-foot space that was dedicated in 2001. The couple were also the namesake supporters of Gleason Library, a multifunctional academic and social space on the east side of Rush Rhees Library that was dedicated in 2007.

Faculty Emeriti

William Barker Jr., a longtime member of the faculty in the Department of Preventive Medicine at the Medical Center, died in September. With research interests that spanned infectious diseases, epidemiology, and geriatric health services, Barker joined the faculty in 1975. He also held positions in community medicine and public health sciences at Rochester.

Ronald Jones, who joined the Department of Economics as a professor in 1958 as part of a cohort that built the then new department into an academic powerhouse, died in September. Considered a leading figure in the field of international economics, Jones influenced ideas about global trade, and the policies, systems, and institutions that affect trade during his 50-plus years as a scholar and author. His 1973 book, World Trade and Payments, (Little Brown & Co.), coauthored with Richard Caves, became a preeminent undergraduate textbook, going through 10 editions. His most recent book was 2018’s International Trade Theory and Competitive Models (World Scientific Publishing Company). Recognized by the American Economic Association, the Econometric Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Sciences, Jones was a recipient of the University’s Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching and received honorary doctorates from several institutions.

James William (Bill) Johnson, a professor of English from 1955 to 1997, died in June. The editor and author of nine books, Johnson was recognized for his work on the English Restoration era, particularly the relationships of the poet John Wilmot, the Second Earl of Rochester, with playwrights in London from 1660 to 1680 and Wilmot’s influence on later writers. He taught courses on 18th-century literature, the English novel, women in film, and other areas.

William McHugh, who directed the Eastman Dental Center for nearly a quarter century, died in October. In addition to serving as director from 1970 to 1994, McHugh was a professor and associate dean for dental affairs. He is credited with leading the effort to relocate the center to the campus of the Medical Center, a move that was completed in 1978. Widely recognized as a clinician and researcher, he was a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, the American College of Dentists, and other leading academic organizations.

Adrian Melissinos, a professor of physics from 1955 to 2022, died in July. Melissinos developed an international reputation for research in experimental high-energy physics and the nature of the universe, helping physicists identify properties of subatomic particles considered important in understanding dark matter, which accounts for about 85 percent of matter in the universe but has only been inferred by scientists from other observations. Involved in the first searches for cosmic axions—particles that barely interact with normal matter—Melissinos led some of his era’s most exhaustive searches for dark matter.

Peter Regenstreif, a professor of political science from 1961 to 2009, died in May. An expert on Canadian and comparative politics, mass media, and public opinion, Regenstreif was the author of The Diefenbaker Interlude: Parties and Voting in Canada; an Interpretation (Longmans, 1965). Recognized as a teacher, Regenstreif taught some of the political science department’s largest and most popular courses, including Politics and the Mass Media, Introduction to Comparative Politics, and Politics in Canada. He also frequently gave talks on the subjects for alumni audiences and for others outside the classroom.
