Bertram Wyatt-Brown

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Bertram Wyatt-Brown at the age of 80. Dr. Wyatt-Brown spent most of his teaching career at Case Western Reserve University and the University of Florida; his last position was as a visiting fellow at Johns Hopkins University, where he had earned his Ph.D. in  1963. He was the author of numerous works on the history of the south, including the Pulitzer-nominated Southern Honor: Ethics and Behavior in the Old South. He was the coeditor (with Peter Wallenstein) of Virginia’s Civil War and completed another book with the University of Virginia Press, A Warring Nation: Honor, Race, and Humiliation at Home and Abroad, which will be published in Fall 2013. The Baltimore Sun ran an excellent appreciation of Dr. Wyatt-Brown’s life and career; you may read it here.
