I had Dr. Nowak for Russian history class at Bridgewater St College back in 1979 liked the way he taught and the fact that he lit up cigar in the middle of class was quite refreshing.

I was sorry to hear of Professor Nowak's passing. I only had the pleasure of one course with him in early 1980s. I remember vividly his oft repeated line in lecture, "there can be no history without geography," it is a line I have used throughout my career Western and World Civ courses. Dr. Nowak's course is a fond memory and his teaching remains a part of my teaching.
