Edward H. Judge and John W. Langdon are professors of history at Le Moyne College, where they have team-taught for the last sixteen years a two-semester world history course for first-year students and courses on modern global history for upper-level students. Ed earned his doctorate at the University of Michigan and spent a year in the USSR as an IREX scholar. John earned his doctorate at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Public Affairs, where he was a National Defense Fellow. Ed has taught at Le Moyne since 1978, was the College's Scholar of the Year in 1994, and was awarded the J. C. Georg Endowed Professorship in 1997. John has taught at Le Moyne since 1971, directed its Honors Program, and was awarded the O'Connell Distinguished Teaching Professorship in 1996. Each has been named the College's Teacher of the Year and has chaired its Department of History. They have written or edited eight books: three in collaboration with each other, three as individuals, and two in collaboration with other scholars. They love teaching world history, especially to students of diverse backgrounds and interests, and they derive great joy from infecting their students with a passion and enthusiasm for the study of the human past.
