Abstract: Sidney Chavetz was hired by Ohio State University, to teach water color, but over time excelled in print making. He also taught engraving and relief. During 1950 and 1951 Chavetz studied in Paris with the world famous engravers, Stanley Hayter and Juan Miro. When he returned to Ohio State he was promoted to Assistant Professor, granted tenure, the first non-OSU graduate to be granted tenure in the Art Department. By 1954 he was teaching new courses in engraving. Chafetz achieved fame over time for his work in academic satire. He found himself amused, at times offended, by political infighting within the university, including his own department
