David Maas, Ph.D.

Professor of History Emeritus

On Faculty since 1970, Retired 2010




Dr. Maas taught American History Survey and the Civil War class at Wheaton. He has always had a professional interest in the story of the "losers" and neglected average people in American history. Trying to uncover their stories has led him most often into primary documents in local history.

Personal interests mainly revolve around his family: wife (Bobbie), four children (David, Pam, Beth, and Daniel), and fifteen grandchildren. Dr. Maas ran a professional photography business from 1972 until 2004; in his spare time, he enjoys fishing and reading.
