  • We're sad to learn of the passing of Tom Allsen, TCNJ professor emeritus of history.

    Below is a tribute to Dr. Allsen written by TCNJ colleague Daniel Crofts. Please feel free to share your own memories of Dr. Allsen in the comments.

    ---

    Thomas T. Allsen, who taught history at Trenton State College and The College of New Jersey from 1980 to 2002, died in Eugene, Oregon, on February 18, 2019, at the age of 79. He is survived by his wife, Lucille Allsen. He was a gifted teacher, a cherished colleague, and an exemplary scholar.

    When Tom first was hired, historical study at the college was confined primarily to the United States and Europe. For eight years he taught everything to the east—Russia, the Islamic World, Eurasia, and China. Led by him and John Karras, the veteran History chair, the department transformed itself to emphasize a global approach and hired specialists on China, Russia, Central Asia, India, Africa, and Latin America.

    Allsen’s trademarks as a teacher were substance, clarity, rigor, and fairness. His commitment to history shone through, and he developed a following. Meredith Roman, class of 1998, now Associate Professor of History at The College at Brockport (SUNY Brockport), considers him “the most powerful and effective lecturer I have ever met.” She “never had an interest in Russian or world history until I took a course with him. I was an elementary education major, but his amazing gifts as a teacher and mentor inspired me to become a historian of modern Russia. I try to channel Tom's impressive energy and breadth of knowledge every time I enter the classroom. The world has experienced a profound loss with his passing.”

    Tributes from his TCNJ colleagues strike a repeated theme. "It always amazed me that such a large, burly, tattooed army veteran could be so kind and considerate with his junior colleagues,” notes Celia Chazelle. “Tom was an amazing scholar, but in addition he was such a sweet, gentle human being. I miss him terribly.” Qin Shao recalls that Tom “quickly became my mentor and friend” when she first was hired. “Every time we went out to eat, he made sure that I got all the leftovers.” They shared much, notably an “irreverence toward power.” When Jo-Ann Gross learned about a job opening at Trenton State College, she decided “if Tom Allsen teaches there, it must be a good place.” It was, and “Tom was always there for me. He made me feel I belonged. He was the kindest, most brilliant, modest, sincere, intellectually energetic person I had ever met. He had a huge impact on me personally and intellectually. I learned from him that teaching is a gift and a long-term project, and that being a teacher-scholar enhances not detracts from family and friendship. Tom and Lucille were the model couple to me, and seeing them together always brought me joy. They truly loved and respected one another, and complemented and supported one another in infinite ways. I will miss him greatly, and feel an emptiness in my heart.”

    Allsen’s accomplishments as a scholar were extraordinary. His friend Peter Golden, Professor Emeritus of History, Turkish and Middle Eastern Studies at Rutgers University, salutes the remarkable breadth of his work on the history and culture of Medieval Eurasia and the Mongol Empire. His “excellent knowledge of Chinese, Persian, Arabic, Russian and Western European languages, his thorough command of the sources dealing with the peoples of Eurasia, and his jargon-free style of exposition” set him apart. His books and articles are “essential reading for scholars in the field and for students of world history.” He also “gave willingly and generously of his time” by providing “sage counsel to an extensive range of scholars, from novices to aging veterans.”

    Without doubt, Tom Allsen was the most internationally renowned scholar ever to hold a post on the TSC/TCNJ faculty. His productivity continued during his retirement, with his newest book to be published next month. The forthcoming Cambridge History of the Mongol Empire will be dedicated to him, a signal honor. His presence distinguished the TCNJ History Department and made it a rewarding place to study and teach. All of us who knew and admired Tom were uplifted by his world-historical perspective, his infectious humor, and his rare decency.

    Daniel W. Crofts
