Rough Stuff

G.W. Bowersock, "Rostovtzeff in Madison," American Scholar 55.3 (Summer 1986) 391-400 (at 395):
Rostovtzeff cut a formidable figure at Madison. Short and stocky, he stood very straight. His hair was cropped in a brush style, his eyes were disconcertingly bright and piercing, and his manner always positive. He could appear frightening, and the Wisconsin students, confronted with this awesome personality, called him "Rough Stuff."
