      Born Jan. 19, 1918, in Brooklyn, N.Y., he was the son of Jacob and Luba (Katz) Kallich. He married Harriett Sclar on July 11, 1943, while on active service in the U.S. Army. Martin served in the anti-aircraft unit of the Coast Artillery from 1942 to 1944.

      Martin graduated from the College of the City of New York in 1938 with an award for academic excellence. He received a Ph.D. in English literature from the Johns Hopkins University in 1945. He was the author of 10 books and many scholarly articles.

He was a member of the Modern Language Association and the American Society for 18th Century Studies.

      Martin taught at Johns Hopkins, Brooklyn College, Wayne State University and South Dakota State before coming to Northern Illinois University, where he taught graduate and undergraduate classes in English from 1958 until his retirement in 1979. In 1971, he started the English department's summer program at Oxford University. He helped with the growth of the rare books section at the NIU library.
