Biographical/Historical Note

Thomas Curtis Van Cleve was born on May 1, 1888, in Malden, Missouri. He received an A.B. (1911) and A.M. (1912) from the University of Missouri and a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. Van Cleve taught history and political science at Bowdoin College from 1915 until his retirement in 1954, at which time he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters degree. His main fields of teaching and research were the Middle Ages, English constitutional history, and the history of political theory. His teaching career was interrupted by his military service in World War I and World War II as an intelligence officer.

Van Cleve was the author of Markward of Anweiler and the Sicilian Regency (1937), The Emperor Frederick II of Hohenstaufen: Immutator Mundi (1972) and an unpublished memoir, "Observations and Experiences of an Intelligence Officer in Two World Wars." He was a contributing author to A History of the Crusades, volume two (1962), and wrote articles for American Historical Review, Speculum, and other journals.

Thomas Curtis Van Cleve died on February 10, 1976, in Brunswick, Maine, survived by a nephew, Dr. J. Thomas Van Cleve, and two nieces, Mrs. Mary M. Jackson and Mrs. Vera L. Bay.
