Timothy A. Milford

Professor Milford is an historian of colonial and early national North America. He studied at Duke and Harvard universities.  His research has concentrated on political change and cultural aspiration in the late 18th century. For an example of his work, please see The Gardiners of Massachusetts:  Provincial Ambition and the British-American Career (University Press of New England, 2005). He is currently studying how Latin American unrest and the geopolitics of the Napoleonic era affected Anglo-American relations and conceptions of empire.

Prof. Milford teaches an honors section of the history core every year – and sometimes twice a year.  He also offers courses on colonial and revolutionary America, the law and its practice in American history, and the confrontation of Europeans and Amerindians.   He advises the St. John’s chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society.
