Biographical and Professional Information

Gerald J. Prokopowicz specializes in Public History and the Civil War era. He received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Michigan, and practiced law for several years in Chicago. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University, and served for nine years as the Lincoln Scholar at the Lincoln Museum in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he co-wrote the award winning permanent exhibit “Abraham Lincoln and the American Experiment,” and edited the quarterly bulletin Lincoln Lore.

As a professor of public history, Dr. Prokopowicz is dedicated to training students to practice history outside of academia, and to removing the artificial barriers that divide academic historians from public historians and from the public itself. He is a member of the Advisory Board to the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission and the Lincoln Forum. He has written numerous reviews and articles for popular and scholarly periodicals. His current research interests include public perceptions of Abraham Lincoln and Civil War military tactics.
