Henry Steele Commager

Henry Steele Commager, youngest son of James W. Commager and Elisabeth Dann, was born on October, October 25, 1902 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Orphaned at an early age, he went to live--, first in Toledo, Ohio and later in Chicago--, with his maternal grandfather Adam Dan, a well known pastor of the Danish Lutheran Church. Upon graduation from high school, he went to work in the library of the University of Chicago. Working his way through his undergraduate years, Commager had earned the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees by the time he was 28. His first teaching position was at New York University where he began as an instructor in 1926. A decade later he joined the faculty of Columbia University (from 1936 to 1956) and later went on to Amherst College (from 1956 to 1992). In addition he held visiting professorships at many other universities both within the United States and abroad. His affiliation with Peterhouse, Cambridge lasted until his death on March 2, 1998.
