Tom Gleba (Aug 22, 1920 - January 29, 2005) was a game designer. He left Ohio State University during World War II to serve in the Army. After being stationed in Iceland as a staff sergeant, he returned to Ohio State to finish work on his bachelor's degree.
"Mr. Gleba and his wife designed a board game, Play Sheriff, that substituted colors for words. Marketed by Milton Bradley, the game proved lucrative enough for the Glebas to help finance their children's educations."
