Schnur, a graduate student in history at USF at the time, created this booklet as a study guide to assist in preparations for his comprehensive examinations in the USF History M.A. program. Although most of the focus is on historians prior to the 1970s, this booklet does provide biographical vignettes that may assist those interested in learning about various schools of thought in the American historical profession. Most of the information in this handbook came from Schnur's notes in various classes, as well as other helpful sources, such as the Dictionary of Literary Biography.
