Biography information (excerpted from UD Bio of Dr Schweikart):


Larry Schweikart


•    Full-Time Faculty

Dr. Schweikart ….. returned to Arizona State University to obtain a teaching certificate, and in the process took a history class that changed his life. From that moment on, he wanted to be a history professor (even though he still played drums at night all the way through grad school).


In 1977, Dr. Schweikart entered the Arizona State history program to obtain a master’s degree, and in the process wrote a national prize-winning article on Peary’s quest for the North Pole. A year later, he won, in unprecedented fashion, the same prize again! By that time, Dr. Schweikart was ready for a Ph.D. program, and attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he completed all exams in one year, graduating with distinction two years later after completing his dissertation, “Banking in the American South.” During his M.A. and Ph.D. work, he was blessed to be given writing assignments that led to two books: A History of Banking in Arizona (1982) and Trident (1984), a book Dr. Schweikart co-authored with political science professor Doug Dalgleish, which was a history/policy study of the Trident submarine program. His dissertation became his fourth book, published shortly after his graduation.


Dr. Schweikart worked for one year in the University of Wisconsin system, then came to UD, quickly receiving promotions to associate, then full professor. He has continued to write, producing some 15-20 books and more than 50 articles.


The dynamic history professor, Dr Larry Schweikart, will present the real history of the Crusades at our SMCLG meeting.
