BRUCE H. MANN is a noted legal historian who takes special interest in the Early American era. But it is a piece of personal history that gives him great pleasure as he begins a new academic year.

After 17 years at Penn Law, Mann has been appointed the Leon Meltzer Professor of Law and Professor of History.

A “It pleases me enormously to be the third holder of a chair that was previously held by two people (A. Leo Levin and Michael Moore) I’m both very fond of and respect.”

Mann began his academic career at the University of Connecticut. Prior to Penn, he taught at Washington University in St. Louis. In his years at Penn, Mann has won three teaching awards and developed unrivaled expertise in the study of bankruptcy in colonial America. His latest book, Republic of Debtors: Bankruptcy in the Age of American Independence, snared three awards: the J. Willard Hurst Prize from the Law & Society Association; the Littleton-Griswold Prize from the American Historical Association; and the SHEAR Book Prize from the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic.
