About Professor Krueckeberg

Most students call John Krueckeberg [Crew'kuh-Berg], “Dr. K.” (He thought taking the umlaut out of his name would improve things . . . .) Professor K earned his Ph.D. at the University of Arizona, where he studied social history under Juan Garcia, cultural history under Paul Carter, and intellectual/European history under Hermann Rebel. After teaching along the U.S.-Mexican border for four years, John moved closer to his NJ home when he came to Plymouth in 2001. Since then he has taught chronological courses in U.S. history since the Civil War: Gilded Ages? The Great Depression, US Home Fronts in the 1940s&1950s, and America Since 1960. You may even find him teaching a survey of European history or a special topics course such as African-American History.

Dr. Krueckeberg’s published works and professional presentations focus either on his dissertation or his special interest in historical city planning.

Currently he is working on a book concerning the life and times of a main character from his dissertation – the somewhat forgotten American from the 1930s, Raymond Gram Swing. He likes studying the life of Swing because it resurrects a unique and noble antifascist vision of America’s future at a time when many people felt that around the globe, democracy was on the wane.
