Professor of History

Trained as both a physicist and a historian, Lewis Pyenson is Professor of History at Western Michigan University. He is the author of books about mathematics and physics in Germany and a trilogy about the exact sciences in the imperial experience of Germany, the Netherlands, and France during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He coauthored a general survey of the history of science, Servants of Nature (Norton/HarperCollins). His most recent scholarly book, The Passion of George Sarton (American Philosophical Society), examines how an early twentieth-century marriage related to the formation of an academic discipline.
