    LA PORTE, IN, February 07, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Alan Barcus has been inducted into Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Drawing on nearly 50 years of experience in his field, Mr. Barcus is an accomplished composer, lyricist and playwright who has scored music for Emmy Award-nominated television shows and Oscar Award-nominated movies. Among his credits are "American Playhouse," "Eli," "Hair" and the in-progress "Lords of the Levee." A talented performer, he is also the founder of the Alan Barcus Trio and the creator of two albums, "Don't I Know" (2019) and "Alan Barcus Trio Album" (1963). In addition, he has produced over 2,600 television commercials and has won 10 Clio awards for excellence in advertising. As a commitment to his profession, Mr. Barcus is a member of the Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) and the American Federation of Musicians.

Mr. Barcus's first love was not music, but athletics; when he cofounded a company called Old Harrier Music in 1973, he chose its name as a reference to his longtime passion for cross-country running. A celebrated athlete and coach, he was a champion track-and-fielder during his undergraduate years at Indiana State University. After obtaining a master's degree in business and finance from the same university in 1960, he went on to serve as track and field coach at Brazil High School from 1960 to 1969, leading his teams to Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) Top Ten finishes six times. His passion for sports stuck with him through the decades; Mr. Barcus considers his most notable accomplishments to be his induction into the Indiana State University's Hall of Fame in 1999 and his recognition as a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics All-American in 1958. Later in life, he continued his athletic excellence as a member of four Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Over-50 World Championship Basketball teams.

Mr. Barcus attributes his success to his work ethic and family, particularly his parents, Raymond Barcus and Nellie (Hunt) Barcus, who influenced and helped hone his musical and athletic abilities. His mother taught him how to play the piano at a very young age, before turning him over to piano teacher Hilda Wagner Pease, while his father, a baseball player who played in the minor leagues, inspired him to become an athlete. Today, Mr. Barcus and his wife, Ann, have been married 62 years. Together, they have a daughter, Katherine "Katy" Barcus Miller, and two grandchildren. Looking toward the future, Mr. Barcus hopes to have success on the stage of a major theater or on Broadway.
