Henry Emil Salloch (December 31, 1908 - 1985) was a German-American artist and graphic designer. Born Heinz Emil Salloch in Berlin, Germany, Salloch studied art at the Muthesiushochschule in Kiel, Germany before returning to Berlin to teach art in 1929. After the rise of National Socialism and Adolf Hitler, Salloch refused to join the Nazi Party. He also continued to teach art to Jewish students, in defiance of a Party edict, and even used the Nazi newspaper Völkischer Beobachter in his class. After his landlady informed him that the Gestapo had been asking around about him Salloch fled the country and ended up in Cuba before immigrating to the United States in 1937. He spent the late 1930s traveling up the U.S. East Coast from Florida to New York, where he lived in Montauk for a while. The 1940 U.S. Census notes Salloch as living as a bachelor in New York City. While in Germany, Salloch's art focused mainly on Modernist landscapes utilizing a pared-dawn abstracted style. After moving to the United States, however, he supported himself as a commercial artist. Salloch married Erika Salloch, a professor of German at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, another Jewish German refugee who escaped Nazi Germany in 1937. Today, the Erika and Henry Salloch Prize is given by the Department of Modern Languages at Washington College, in memory of Erika and Henry Sallock, to the student whose achievement and personal commitment have contributed to the understanding of other cultures.
