Professor Larry Schweikart:


Meet Professor Larry Schweikart, a.k.a. Professor Larry, America’s History Teacher. For decades, he’s been sharing his depth of knowledge, and teaching thousands – people of all ages – about the past so they can better understand today. Not only is he a New York Times  best-selling author, he’s also a news commentator who has been tapped for his political insights on major news outlets including Fox, Al-Jazeera, Glenn Beck, Travis Smiley and Rush Limbaugh. Most recently, he’s the history wiz behind the online history hub, The Wild World of History, a site where history lovers, political enthusiasts, teachers and homeschoolers can get their dose of history’s wild world and find powerful resources to teach it.

Professor Larry brings his intellectually irreverent teaching style that made him so popular with his students, to audiences across the country through talks and through the website, The Wild World of History.

Professor Larry is a native-born Arizonian, who, after graduating from Arizona State University with a BA in Political Science, went on the road as a rock-and-roll drummer  performing with several different bands and , opening for 60s/70s iconic acts including Steppenwolf. He abruptly decided he wanted to be a history professor, and received an MA from ASU in history, then a Ph.D. from University of California, Santa Barbara. He began his teaching career at the University of Dayton in 1985 where he stayed until retiring.

In 2009 Professor Larry produced the documentary film, “Rockin’ the Wall,” about rock music’s part in bringing down the Iron Curtain. It appeared on PBS and is still the foremost documentary on the subject of rock-and-roll’s influence in world events.

His best-selling books include Seven Events that Made America, 48 Liberal Lies About American History, and his #1 NY times bestseller, with Mike Allen, A Patriot’s History of the United States. In 2015 he perceived Donald Trump would win the presidency and began chronicling his campaign in his 2017 book with Joel Pollak, How Trump Won, which was rejected by every publisher until after the election.

His most recent book, Reagan: The American President will be out ON MAY FIRST, 2019.  |
