Professor Emeritus Hans Trefousse Memorial Service 

DESCRIPTION: Born in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1921, Professor Trefousse graduated from City College of New York in 1942, and received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1950. During the Second World War, he served as Captain in U.S. Army Intelligence. After teaching part-time in the School of General Studies beginning in 1946, he rose in the ranks from Instructor to Distinguished Professor in a career at Brooklyn College that lasted half a century (1950-1999). He was still teaching at the college’s Institute for Retirees in Pursuit of Education in fall 2009. Recipient of the Brooklyn College Distinguished Teacher Award, a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, and a grant from the American Council of Learned Societies, Professor Trefousse was a specialist in the history of the American Civil War and Reconstruction. He published widely and right up to the end of his life. Among his many major works are studies of reconstruction and radical republicanism and biographies of Andrew Johnson, Rutherford B.
