Charles Austin Beard was the most influential American
historian of the early 20th century. He published hundreds of
monographs, textbooks and interpretive studies in both history and
political science. He graduated from DePauw University in 1898, where
he met and eventually married Mary Ritter Beard, one of the founders of
the first Greek-letter society for women, Kappa Alpha Theta. Many of
his books were written in collaboration with his wife, whose own
interests lay in feminism and the labor union movement (Woman as a
Force in History, 1946).In 1921, Charles and Mary Beard published their
History of the United States. A contemporaneous review stated: “The
authors… assume enough maturity in high school students to justify a
topical rather than a chronological treatment. They have dealt with
movements, have sketched large backgrounds, have traced causes, and
have discussed the interrelation of social and economic forces and
politics. All this has been directed to the large purpose of helping
the student to understand American today in all its national
characteristics and as part of world civilization as well…The literary
style is exceptionally clear and crisp, and the whole approach…is
thought producing. As a textbook or handbook for the average citizen it
ranks with very best.” (Summary by M.L. Cohen)
