Professor Sidney J Gluck

Honorary Director and Advisor

Professor Emeritus
New School for Social Research

US-China People's Friendship Association

Sholom Aleichem Memorial Foundation

For fifty years, Professor Gluck has pursued concurrent careers in business, education, the arts and public interest advocacy. He was educated at the City College of New York in Business Administration and Economics, The New York School of Textile Technology in Fabric Technology and Design, the New School for Social Research in History, Art and Philosophy and a Masters/PhD program in Political Economy at its Graduate Faculty. He also earned a degree in Political Science at the Empire State College of New York.

His business career, starting in the late 1930's, was interrupted by assignments to special projects during World War II and was responsible for a number of developments: introduced the heat set method to stabilize uneven nylon fibers for parachutes; initiated spun glass/fiber laminates with epoxy for bullet-proof vests (now used for small boats). A subsidy from Catalina Mills helped establish his own company, Malibu Textiles, a leading innovator in rubber thread stretch fabrics. He won several textile-related patents during this period.

Later, as a consultant, he served major firms such as Canadian Celanese Corporation (reorganized elastic fabric weaving operation), Burlington Mills and Textiles Morelos de Cuernavaca, Mexico, (established stretch yarn spinning and weaving venture); and Darlington Fabrics (created generic Antron/Spandex fabric still used in swimsuits). As President and CEO of London-based Staflex International, Ltd., he introduced fusible interlinings revolutionizing garment construction in the USA. On "retiring" in the mid 70's, he purchased Royal Studios and specialized in decorative fabric design, technology and management and subsequently created a print-converting division for Kravet Fabrics, who he now serves as Development Consultant for the creation of new base fabrics.

In the field of education Professor Gluck was Chairman of the Economics and Politics Department of the Jefferson School of Social Science; adjunct Professor of Economics at Ramapo College School of Social Relations; and has been a member of the Social Science Faculty of the New School for Social Research in New York (now known as New School University) for twenty years. He has also taught at textile institutes including Parsons School of Design, Fashion Institute of Technology, Philadelphia College of Textile Science, and the New York School for Interior Design.

As an artist, Professor Gluck has exhibited works in painting, photography, and fabric design at MIT and Parsons among other galleries. One photgraphic show titled Children in New York Subway has been exhibited in eight museums in Russia and the USA. His latest professional portraits, transformed by computer and printed in oil-enhanced inks on canvas, had a most successful first of its kind exhibit at the National Arts Club in September 1997.

In the area of political advocacy, Professor Gluck organized opposition to exorbitant bail for political defendants and the elimination of chauvinistic crime reporting. He organized the Live and Let Live movement which turned public sentiment from the brink of war with China over Quemoy and Matsu, the island outposts of Taiwan (a precursor of SANE). The Live and Let Live seven-point program was used by President Nixon in opening relations with China. Later, Professor Gluck was Treasurer of committees for Medical Aid to Cuba and Chairman of the Emergency Committee for Disaster Relief to Cuba (Hurricane Flora, 1963) and he garnered public opposition to USA invasion and occupation of Grenada during the Cold War. He was Co-Director of World Fellowship of Faiths with Dr. Willard Uphaus from 1957 to 1967. For many years, Professor Gluck has worked to support affirmative action, including newspaper ad campaigns which he initiated.

He is currently President of the Sholom Aleichem Memorial Foundation; a member of the Eastern Economic Association (EEA) and the Union for Radical Political Economists (URPE) and Co-Chairman of the US-China Society of Friends. He hosts a public access TV Show in New York on Pacific Rim News Review in its sixth year, which is syndicated, and he is a regular contributor to news analysis on radio.

Among his past affiliations are: Board member, International Committee for the Dance Library of Israel; Co-President of the US-China People's Friendship Association, New York Chapter, and Chairman for Outreach Member, Advisory Committee of Technion University, Israel; American Association of Textile Colorists and Chemists (AATCC); and a Secretary of the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee which merged with the Center for Constitutional Rights.

China related studies and activities

Professor Gluck has taught Political and Economic Science for over fifty years, specializing in Classical Marxism (including Dialectical Materialism), and has made a special study of China since the inception of its modern government. For over 20 years he lectured on a comprehensive series of these subjects at the New School for Social Research. He received weekly, monthly and quarterly publications from Beijing (Peking) in English and has followed the twists and turns of modern Chinese history from Maoism and its relations to Russian Communism, through Chou En Lai's diplomatic protection of advocacy of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics, to Deng Xiaoping's Modernization and Opening to the West and Jiang Zemin's reforms and advance to globalization.

In 1955, Professor Gluck organized the Live and Let Live movement which turned public sentiment from the brink of war with China over Quemoy and Matsu, the island outposts of Taiwan (a precursor of SANE). The Live and Let Live seven-point program was used by President Nixon in opening relations with China, having been transmitted to the President through Professor Gluck's association as economic advisor to a Chinese American businessman who headed the Nationalities Committee of the Republican Party at the time.

As a professional business consultant, Professor Gluck has followed the structural changes from a command economy to a market economy with "Socialist" regulations and their effects on the population.

He has visited China a number of times. In fact, the Minister of Culture extended the privilege to take photographic portraits of the Terra Cotta Soldiers in the pit of the Museum in Xian that have been widely exhibited, as have photo essays of people, historic places, and construction.

He has lectured extensively on the restructuring of Chinese society and written articles which have appeared in the Beijing Press and the United States. Professor Gluck has an in-depth knowledge of the ideological gyrations and theories which have motivated changes in China's modern history. He hosts a public access TV show in New York on Pacific Rim New Review in its sixth year which is syndicated and is also a regular contributor to news analysis on radio. His insights encompass differences between Japanese and USA capitalisms and varied structures of East Asia economies.

Professor Gluck was Co-President of the US-China People's Friendship Association, New York Chapter, until September 1999. He headed its Outreach activity. He is Co-Founder and Chairman of the US-China Society of Friends which is a new membership organization of professionals from various fields interested in exchanges between the two countries. He is also active in programming contacts for Chinese groups visiting the USA and organizing China visits by professional groups from the States. Professor Gluck is regularly invited to speak at Chinese-American community functions.

Professor Gluck joined Wyith's advisory council as the Honorary Director and Advisor in July 2002.
