Although Mr. Boesch was a draftsman and engineer by trade, his passion was commercial art. After retiring from Standard Register in 1986, Mr. Boesch began creating pen and ink drawings of many notable Dayton buildings, including many of the buildings which stood on the University of Dayton campus at the time.
